One principle of fair trade is respect for the environment. According to the World Fair Trade Organization, this means that members must recycle, source sustainable materials, use renewable energy, and reduce energy consumption when possible. In our store, many of our beautiful handicrafts are made with old fabric scraps or recycled metals. Many are also produced without the use of paper or harmful dyes! And, you'll see that our clothing and accessories have been made with natural fibers that can be sustainably farmed.
By purchasing these eco-friendly gifts, you're ensuring that our artisan partners can create livelihoods that foster a greener future for us all.
