Reno, NV – One in six Americans face hunger every day. According to DoSomething.org and Feed America, 50.1 million Americans struggle to put food on the table for themselves and their family. Often, families have to decide between food and transportation to work or school, medical care or paying for their housing every month. When Ecōths men’s clothing company began in 2014, they wanted to give back and make a difference in other’s lives. Hunger touches every community and is a very real issue in this country, so for every garment they sell, Ecōths donates three meals to food banks throughout the United States.
“We are very proud to know that not only are we doing our best to make high-quality, sustainable products, but we are also making a difference in the lives of those who go hungry in the US every day,” states Tom Williamson, VP of Marketing and Sales at Ecōths. “Our initial vision for the brand to help change the world we live in is coming to fruition and we are so thankful to all of our retailers for helping to make our dream a reality.”
With the successful launch of the brand in 2014, Ecōths donated over 44,000 meals to food banks in their sales reps territories. In addition to being sold in key specialty retailers, Ecōths was well-received by retailers, Scheels and Zappos. As a thank you for the great support from these two large retailers, Ecōths donated 4,000 of the 45,000 meals, to the Las Vegas, NV and Fargo, MN food banks.
