We all know there are those in the world who are suffering because of high poverty levels and poor economic times; but thankfully, there are companies who are ready to change that all.

With the launch of Edun’s Pioneers Project last Sunday, business owners are turning their attention towards the activist message behind the clothing company. Started by Bono and wife Ali Hewson, Edun is a sustainable fashion line aimed at building economic development in Africa. Their mission is to promote fair trade in Africa by showing respect at all steps of clothing production- from collecting the raw materials, to the production, and finally to the consumer. With those thoughts in mind, Edun creators wanted to showcase 12 men as models for their Fall 2011 Collection who are also driven by the same goals of raising awareness for a philanthropic cause. The 12 “Pioneers” share a wide range of professions, from nonprofit founders, to filmmakers, to an athlete, and chef. During the Edun Pioneers Project Launch Party at Red Rooster, I got a chance to meet some of the stylish men selected for the project and ask them their thoughts about the mission behind Edun.

Since 2005, Ali Hewson and U2’s Bono, have been not only leading in the world of fashion with their clothing line Edun, but have also been inspiring others to help develop trading in Africa. To this day, Edun still works with the belief that style should have substance while it brings work and growth in Africa.To help bring attention to some supporters of Edun and their mission, Edun’s Fall/Winter 2011 Men’s Wear Campaign took a different approach by featuring 12 stylish men and their own missions within the community. Edun’s “Pioneers” Campaign highlight 12 “social entrepreneurs that are effecting change in business, the arts, and the environment.”
