Society doesn't just need a pair of jeans, it also needs acts that change the world and help us to be better people. That's why at Capitán Denim we have carried out various activities with associations and organisations that need everyone's help.
Llanero Solidario is a non-profit organisation from Albacete that implements projects for a more sustainable development. In addition, it also enables the collaboration of people in vulnerable situations.
Project Entre Costuras
With them we carry out "Entre Costuras", a socio-labour insertion project aimed at people at risk of social exclusion. Through a donation of rolls of fabric, the members of the project were able to train in sewing and customisation techniques, making merchandising products.
Recalculando Ruta Project
In order to be able to do our bit for employment, we give women who are in a situation of social exclusion the opportunity to do work experience in our physical shops. In this way, they can learn skills such as customer service, training in sales techniques in the textile sector, administrative actions, etc.
They are also carrying out a project to market recycled Fiberpack® cellulose, from tetrabricks packaging, and ecological hygiene products, "EcoNatural". This project is focused on training in product distribution and sales techniques for people at risk of social exclusion. Since they started with "EcoNatural", we have been consumers of their products because, in addition to collaborating in this social project, we respect the environment.
Unfortunately, the situation caused by COVID-19 led us, like so many other companies, to close our doors due to the State of Alarm. In addition, the lack of sanitary materials caused a major livelihood crisis. That is why we set about making masks to donate to alleviate this great need. The masks were made for homes, health workers and the sick.
Solidarity T-shirts "For all of them"
Races, sporting events, charity activities, ... the pandemic took with it all these fundraising actions of great importance in associations. That is why, in October 2020 and on the occasion of the day against breast cancer, we put on sale solidarity T-shirts for the benefit of the Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC). Thanks to this action, we raised more than €500, all of which went to the association.
But this is not all, we still have many more NGOs to help. Year after year, we want to do a charity event to be able to lend a hand to all those who need it.
