Since September 2019 clients of the fairtrade shoe brand ethletic can tip the people who produce their shoes at the factory Talon Sports in Sialkot, Pakistan. The small amount people add to the shopping cart already has a huge impact on the workers and their families.

The context

In the Pakistani Fairtrade Factory Talon Sports, workers earn not only minimum wages but living wages. The working conditions are much better than in most places in Pakistan and their families receive education and health care. Nevertheless, the income of workers does not exceed 5 € per day, with consequences for their families’ living standards. With tip me you can double daily wages, strengthen the visibility of the workers and support them in realising their goals and dreams!  

 

The Solution

tip me works for a world in which fair products are taken for granted. tip me establishes an easy and convenient way to tip the people who make our products. While shopping online at ethletic.de, people can now add with one click a small tip to their shopping cart and support the producers of their sneakers in Pakistan.

How does it work?

tip me receives all the tips that people have been given online and hands it on to the people in Pakistan. How does this work? We register all the workers with their phone number, ID card and if in place, their individual bank accounts.

In cases where the workers do not have bank accounts, we transfer 100 % of the money via Mobile Money directly to their SIM card. Cash Pickup can be done at a local kiosk or bank. To avoid conflicts, the tips are distributed equally between all the workers involved in the production process. 

How do we finance ourselves?

We can transfer 100% of the tip, because we can cover our own costs through the partner companies that profit from positive marketing and also do their share for a better tomorrow.

HOW CAN I GIVE A TIP?

Support workers in realizing their goals

At ethletic’s online shop you can now send Sajida and her team of 70 schoemakers in Sialkot, Pakistan a global tip.

With the tip she wants to buy groceries.
