Sleep Better with Fair Trade

Rest Easy with Fair Trade. For every Fair Trade Certified bedding or bedroom product sold, factory workers and/or cotton farmers earn additional money to address critical needs like transportation, healthcare for women, and disaster relief. The best part is, it’s up to them to decide how to use it based on their most pressing needs.

Stop Human Trafficking with Fair Trade

Turn on the light and stop human trafficking by choosing Fair Trade products. With Fair Trade, small-scale farmers and workers who receive fair wage can better provide for their families, and avoid the cycle of poverty that push children into situations of exploitation and trafficking. https://tinyurl.com/hxbejm4

Out of Unemployment with Paper

I never really think about the way our paper is made or
where it comes from. There are papermaking artisans who
have taken their craft and turned it into a solution
for unemployment and thin out invasive vegetation at
the same time. Salay Handmade Paper in Philippines share
their passion.
