Kiera Gordon, founder and family friend, works with cooperatives from around the globe who are lifting themselves out of poverty through fair trade commerce.
Their mission is to improve the economic and social standing of vulnerable populations of the world by creating self-sustainable employment that reinforces local economies through fair trade. All of their products are acquired through fair trade, made by local and international cooperatives effected by poverty. They use recycled materials in packaging and business materials whenever possible. A portion of sales goes to non-profit organizations that promote gender equality for girls and women, including Maiti Nepal.
Its a great gift source and the a wonderful way to reach out!
