Giving Back

These organizations share our mission, our vision and our passion for the greater good.

People + Partnerships

We know it’s not just about our products, but it’s also about the people behind our products. We partner with various organizations that meet our high standards and work with them to ensure safe, healthy working environments. We also look for ways to empower the people we work with as well as to give back to the communities where our products are made.

Goals For Good

— By 2020 —

100,000 workers

will benefit from HERproject and VisionSpring

BSR HERproject

Since 2015, the Pottery Barn family of brands has been proud to partner with the nonprofit Business for Social Responsibility through HERproject™ to find ways to empower the people who make our products with access to critical education.

HERproject™ is a collaborative initiative that strives to empower low-income working women through health-related knowledge and by building the financial capability of factory workers to promote well-being and increase standards of living.

Since then, we have launched this program across our global supply chain, reaching over 43,000 workers as of 2019 and well on track to lead the retail industry as we make progress toward our 2020 worker wellbeing goals.

Vision Spring

Along with our family of brands, we have been a proud partner
of Vision Spring since 2018 as part of our worker wellbeing initiative.

"See well, Do well" is VisionSpring's motto, and we share the commitment to improving lives
and productivity through the simple and effective solution of vision correction.

VisionSpring is an innovative social enterprise accelerating the uptake of eyeglasses for earners and learners in emerging and frontier markets by providing access to vision exams
and correction.

As of 2019, we have reached over 18,000 workers as we make progress towards our 2020 goals.

St. Jude

Since 2005, when our partnership with St. Jude began, we have raised almost $43 million for research and the care of children and families facing childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. We are also the sponsor of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Cure4Kids.org, an online resource for healthcare professionals dedicated to enhancing the care of children who have cancer and other life-threatening diseases in countries around the globe.

Meera


“My family consists of my husband and two children. I also have the responsibility of my father-in-law and mother-in-law, who are staying with us. In the past, I couldn’t save any money due to the pressing responsibility of my immediate family. But today, through HER Finance, I learned how to budget and save, and I was able to buy a refrigerator. Now, my husband and I plan our finances and continue to save.”
