WHAT WE’RE READING, LEARNING, WATCHING, AND LISTENING TO IN APRIL

April showers bring May flowers. The phrase insinuates that the heavy rainfall in April will bring about the blooms in May. We all know that making our way through the murky waters of a difficult season will bear something beautiful on the other side. But, May has come and gone a few times and we’re still experiencing the rain.  The surge of violence against marginalized groups continues. Hate-fueled attacks on Asian Americans have spiked across major U.S. cities last year — in some cases by triple-digit percentages.  We all know we can do more, read more and listen more. [...]

The Journey from Hobbyist to a Business Builder

Before someone decides to join as a Sseko Fellow, there are often many moments of hesitation. Not because they aren’t capable. Not because they don’t like the brand.

But the Sseko Fellow program is designed for everyone from hobbyists who would like to earn some cash all the way to Fellows who desire to build teams and grow a business. No matter what type of Fellow you’ll be, there’s a [...]

Women’s History Month: Sseko Celebrates Today’s Changemakers

The Responsible Packaging Movement

Sustainability is a pillar of the Sseko brand. Being a verified member of the Fair Trade Federation, providing livable wages, and being both environmentally and socially conscious is extremely important to us. But far be it from us to pretend like there’s no room for improvement! One key initiative for us in 2021 is to reduce (and someday entirely remove!) plastic waste from our packaging. The fashion industry is a big contributor to industrial waste, and we’re determined to help lead the industry to a brighter, cleaner future. To that end, we are proud to announce we’ve joined the [...]

What We’re Reading, Learning, Watching, and Listening to in February

This month, as we celebrate Black History Month, we want to continue to spotlight Black women and other people of color. It is as important now as it ever was to keep the conversation alive and to move the needle forward. World leaders come and go and can slide the scale in one direction or the other to some extent, but we still believe in our core that real change and actual equality comes from daily work done by ordinary, everyday people. It comes from knowing your neighbor, having hard conversations, and truly hearing each other’s stories, pain, and [...]
