A portion of proceeds from each Loresk product sold ($1 USD = approx. 1.34$ CAD) goes to the The Greater Cincinnati Foundation who send water purification packets to areas where it is needed. The water purification packet contains a powdered mixture that removes pathogenic microorganisms and suspended matter, making previously contaminated water clean. The Greater Cincinnati Foundation publishes their donations received, as do we, annually on our Facebook page. We believe that water should be transparent, and so should we. Our donations are made on the 1st of each month – Each product sold provides 50 days of clean drinking water to a person in need.
For each engagement on our specially indicated promotions (such as “each Facebook share / re-gram / or retweet provides 50 days of clean water” etc.), and for each item of clothing that we donate to charity or person in need, items sold as non-profit, items given to a community or sporting event, or other special giveaway promotions such as but not limited to buy “X” and receive “X” (bogo) – each item still provides 50 days of safe water for one person in the developing world, however for cost purposes these are handled through a donation (minimum of $1.15 USD per total year of water provided) to Water.org, by the creation of wells & community maintenance training.
Loresk Apparel is cruelty free! All of our products are always made without the use of any animal bi-products. Loresk Apparel is all about equality and putting people first. We believe that our choices are the key to helping combat the effects of global warming.
That is why Loresk Apparel encourages you to shop ethically. For every product sold, Loresk Apparel provides 50 days of clean drinking water to one child in need.
At Loresk Apparel, manufacturing quality and ethics are a priority. Products are made through fair labour practices and safe working conditions in environmentally and socially responsible factories. These factories commit to fair work hours, no child labour, unannounced yearly audits, fair local law based compensation, adherence to environmentally conscious practices, and a healthy and safe workplace. Making our products cruelty free for not only animals, but cruelty free for those who manufacture our products as well.
We work to minimize our environmental footprint and to give back to the community where our company is operated. We have products printed and embroidered in a variety of local shops. The products are all checked at multiple levels to ensure quality control.
Some of our apparel is printed in and shipped from California, in a paper free warehouse. Other products such as hoodies and crewnecks are made in WRAP certified warehouses and printed or embroidered in Nova Scotia. This information will be available per item in either the description or the neck tag of said product.
With every piece of Loresk apparel purchased, you are not only providing 50 days of clean water to a child in need; you are showing your support for responsible manufacturing and small business growth.
Loresk Apparel is Christian! We believe that all humans should be treated with respect and equality, we are allies of the LGBTQQIP2SAA community and support all members who identify within and outside of the Kinsey scale. We are strongly against all forms of Islamophobia and homophobia. Being cruelty free, also means accepting everyone’s beliefs, as long as they aren’t hurting anyone or themselves.
Loresk was created to help others around the world. If every company would help out in some small way, the world would be a much better place to live. We believe that the water crisis is something that Christians and everyone must do something about. We are called to tithe, but often do not realize that 1 in 10 people lack access to safe drinking water.
People still need great clothing, and that is why we give 50 days of clean drinking water with every item sold. Our slogan « Never Run Dry » (translation dependent) comes from Isaiah 58:11 – The LORD will always lead you, satisfy you in a parched land, and strengthen your bones. You will be like a watered garden and like a spring whose waters never run dry.
