Tip Me – Giving something back to the makers

Tip Me – Giving something back to the makers

With Tip Me you can give something back directly to the individual garment workers who made your clothes

To give a tip is an expression of appreciation. Besides, it improves the living conditions of people in low-paid sectors. To give a tip is a habit when we go to a restaurant. What if we could tip those people who give a great effort to produce the clothes which we buy? This is exactly the idea behind tip-me. The startup from Cologne in Germany empowers us consumers to tip exactly the worker who sewed our clothes. The tip goes directly to this person, one hundred percent. The company itself receives its revenues from the participating shops.

You can find out more about Tip Me in our GOOD article “Tip the workers who make your clothes“.
