Roots' new limited edition International Women's Day collection is a collaboration with entrepreneur and acclaimed author Emma Knight. The Roots x Emma Knight range consists of an organic cotton tote, a made-in-Canada t-shirt and a leather wristlet featuring the author's original text.
With each sale made, Roots will donate a portion of proceeds to Girls E-Mentorship organization ("GEM") -- "a program developed for girls by girls, to help overcome barriers in the transition to adulthood."
"In a year when women's participation in the workforce has slid back significantly, it is important to remember that lasting change takes intergenerational effort. GEM supports this effort by building bridges across generations and reducing barriers to opportunity through mentorship. I am excited to partner with them on this project and as a mentor," said Emma Knight about the collection that supports this year's International Women's Day #ChooseToChallenge theme.
