Remu is a company that is ethically and environmentally responsible. They use quality textiles refurbished, and if they can’t find what they need, they will use materials from nature, such as natural, organic, or recycled fibers. They fight gender inequality by allowing their women workers behind the clothing financial freedom and independence.

 

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, for every $10 donated, they will donate ten masks to the community of Miranda Ecuador to help support them during this time. This will allow Remu to keep their operations running so they can continue paying their employees as well.
