Local hipster writer Jake Music from NOISE & COLOR magazine stopped by factory number 8 and got the tour. He then sat down with Red Oxx CEO Jim Markel to talk about the resurrection of business ethics. Jim touches on the neighborhood revitalization project BIRD, one of his personal pet projects. Another topic he discussed is our involvement with Fair Trade in the tying of our Monkey Fist Zip Knots. Then he gets down and dirty with a passionate conversation about corporate culture, greed and "people wanting to get paid for nothing".
"Conscious consumerism relies on business owners who are willing to put aside some of their wants so that the rest of the world can attain their needs. Red Oxx Manufacturing is actively working to improve the quality of life in Billings and Guatemala, while making sure that they don't disturb the ecosystem or make any decisions that would not be in the best interest of the community"
