About Our Founder
Hi! My name is Cathy and I am the founder of 700 Rivers, a global, ethical, and sustainable lifestyle brand. My family is originally from Bangladesh, a land of incredible poverty, and immigrated to America before I was born. Growing up in the USA, my family was able to achieve the American dream, where my sisters and I all got a great education and successful careers. This is significant to our family because in Bangladesh, women are not considered equal and their educations and careers are not prioritized as they are for men. I have always known how fortunate I am for being able to grow up in a land of opportunity but I started thinking about the women in Bangladesh (and all over the world) that do not have the means to uproot their lives to a country of opportunity and what that means for their lives, their futures, and their children’s future. So I set out to create an opportunity.
Why 700 Rivers?
Bangladesh is home to more than 700 rivers and waterways, which provide the country's people with life-giving water and fertile land. Much like our namesake, 700 Rivers seeks to enrich the lives of our workers and sustain our environment.
