CHOOSE HAITI

Co-founded by StudioE9′s Elizabeth Brown, Choose Haiti * was an initiative to bring sustainable jobs to Haiti by harnessing the power social media, branding, design and commerce.

With the help of Haitian artists, World Vision and The Clinton Foundation, Choose Haiti produced bracelets made from 100% recycled water bottles and newspaper from the streets of Port au Prince. Displaced Haitians living in tent camps were hired to collect the water bottles and assemble the bracelets. Sold at the GAP, Forever21, Footlocker and dozens of other retailers, the initiative brought thousands of jobs to Haitian refugees. Read about it in Fast Company & Time Magazine.
