Why We Care
We feature fair trade items from Ten Thousand Villages and Mira. Read more about both companies on the page below.
Ten Thousand Villages
Ten Thousand Villages is a global maker-to-market movement that addresses economic injustice. Because every handcrafted object has a life of meaning behind it. You can shop with intention for ethically-sourced handcrafted wares - and share in the joy of empowering makers in Ten Thousand Villages.
As a pioneer of fair trade, Ten Thousand Villages does business differently, putting people and the planet first. That means you can trust that every purchase you make directly impacts the life and community of its maker in a developing country. Together we break the cycle of generational poverty and ignite social change. #LiveLifeFair
Mira Fair Trade maintains a commitment to improving the overall well-being of our artisans and their families. We focus on women and the economically disadvantaged in order to uplift the most impoverished of our global community.
Mira Fair Trade recognizes a responsibility to all living beings as well as Mother Earth. In order to reduce our environmental footprint, we actively promote the reuse of as many materials as possible.
Mira Fair Trade understands that universal change begins with the individual. Therefore, Fair Trade Federation principles act as our means for conducting business and further developing the fair trade way of life.
