The team and I have been brainstorming about what we care the most about, and how to share it with the OHMME community. One thing I am really intent on expressing is that many companies promise the world, and consistently underdeliver and are unrealistic about what they can provide.
Here is a small manifesto of what makes us tick at OHMME.
- Be as transparent as possible with what we do and why we do it.
- Aim to be as sustainable as possible by creating products that have minimal impact on our environment.
- Leverage new technology to create great products from recycled materials.
- Be open to change - this is a learning experience for us - if we need to change something to be more economical or sustainable, let us know
- Work with factories who keep the health and livelihood of workers in mind.
- Harm no animals in the process of making our products.
- Listen to customers to stay on top of what our community is interested in and why.
- Provide next-level, friendly service to both existing and potential customers.
- Provide a fun and stimulating work environment for all OHMME employees.
- Constantly engage with customers for feedback on products & service
- Provide a platform (Blog) for others to share personal stories, insights and experiences with others around the world.
- Be involved in the local communities (eventually worldwide) by hosting + sponsoring events to spread our message
- Give back to the community that provides us with the experience to do what we do (charities, giveaways, contests, etc.)
- Build a team of ambassadors + influencers who embody our core values and share them with their followings.
- Be non-coercive with the people we work with.
- Build a community interest in physical, emotional and psychological well-being
- Raise awareness for men’s mental/emotional health issues
- Use our marketing tools to not only sell our products, but to inform and educate customers
- Educate our customers on fabrics, methods of sustainability, health and well-being.
- Smile in the face of adversity. Starting a business is hard. There are some tough moments, but we won't get beaten down.
- Be proud of what we do and pay fair wages.
- Make profits so we can prove that new businesses can succeed with ethical and environmental foc
