THE ORO MISSION
THE DOWNWARD DOG THAT GIVES BACK
Moving to Mexico from California, we were struck by the dichotomy between high end resorts catering to tourists and the communities that exist to support them. A hotel room at a high end resort can cost upwards of $8,000 pesos per night, while the bartender by the pool might make $50 pesos an hour.
Shouldn’t we support these communities that are integral to the vacation destinations we all know and love? With the importance of tourism in an economy that revolves around it, it seemed obvious to apply a "giving back" philosophy to the tourist shopping experience.
We are committed to donating $10 for every pair of women’s leggings sold to organizations in Mexico that support women and children. We believe that when you weave social responsibility into your style, you are leaving behind a token of gratitude.
We are also able to support this mission by designing and distributing our products ourselves, allowing us to offer fair wages, good jobs, and healthy work environments for our team. We believe we have a social responsibility to support local communities that so generously welcomed us into their lives.
We hope you love our products as much as the message behind them.
