KIDS! Organic Socks that Give Books | Green Dinosaurs
SMALL STEPS. BIG IMPACT. From the moment we found these socks, we knew we had to do our part in bringing them to you. Conscious Step took something as ordinary as socks and turned it into the extraordinary. Stylish and fun, organic cotton and fair trade certified, and most important... raising money and awareness for key charitable causes—which you get to choose.
Each pair provides one book for children. Literacy is the foundation for human communication, connection, and growth; yet nearly a billion people cannot read or write. Conscious Step's partner, Room to Read, aims to change that by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education across developing countries around the world. Literacy skills in the young students help children excel in class and in life – a leg up all kids deserve.
