Purchasing fairly-traded products is supporting social and environmental responsibility, helping to put an end to sweatshops, child labor, and the marginalization of lives in the most disadvantaged parts of the world. In addition to numerous charitable projects, fair trade provides comfortable working conditions and fair wages to the artisans in an effort to improve their standards of living and create a sustainable economy that promotes their talents. We believe you should be proud of what you buy!
Artisans in developing countries are creating beautiful one-of-a-kind works of art. With the help of the fair trade concept, these treasures can be enjoyed by people all around the world. Using recycling efforts, the women and men can turn soda can tabs into beautiful purses and jewelry. Inner tubes become very classy looking purses and handbags. Paper is turned into necklaces,bracelets and earrings and also home decor pieces. Many of the products include stories about the people who make them and we will post stories on the site as well featuring different artisans from around the globe.
My interest in the fair trade quickly became a passion when I realized the women are able to send their children to school, provide health care and improve their own living conditions. They now have hope for the future and opportunities they could never have imagined.
Join me on this exciting adventure and take a trip around the world on this site as we continue to find and bring exciting new products to you!
