Routes are created, paths are crossed, and relationships are made when we purchase goods. At Route we believe that understanding a product's journey is equally as important as the product itself. To acknowledge the significance of that journey is to transform a customer into an ally for the makers. By embracing the relationships that their transactions foster, the allies can understand how their purchase changes the world.
This relationship means ending slavery and workplace abuse. It means engaging in commerce with an eye towards social justice. It means celebrating the connections between makers and allies and revealing how they are equally different and alike.
Know your route. The journey begins with a purchase from our community. We invite you to share our products, our stories, our lives, and to be changed.
