What makes it a social enterprise?

All the products sold by W.E. Garage are produced by women of the Gawad Kalinga community of Pandi-Bulacan. This social enterprise allows those women to earn an income while being able to stay at home close to their family. Since the raw materials come from left-over from the clothing industry and "junks" donations from individuals, they are able to minimize their impact on the environment and help promote recycling of materials.
