FairTradeDesigns.com was officially launched by its founder Stephanie King today after she studied the poverty, unsafe working conditions and low wages common among workers in developing nations. With her new site, she hopes to show the public that they can help balance the scale for others and look beautiful doing it.
Ms. King said, “I am passionate about spreading the word regarding Fair Trade. When people understand that we only sell products from fair trade organizations, they are assured their purchases do not involve child labor, unsafe working conditions, sub-minimum wages or environmentally harmful practices.”
FairTradeDesigns.com carries a wide variety of goods from contemporary, handcrafted jewelry to fashionable purses, tree-free paper products and housewares. FairTradeDesigns.com also offers gift certificates for the people in your life who seem to have everything.
“I’ve researched over 100 suppliers of fair trade products to present what I believe are the most stylish and well-made pieces available. Your purchases are a vote for the kind of world you want to live in. Make your vote count and buy fair trade.”
Here are some of the countries where FairTradeDesigns.com gets its distinctive product line:
