Celebrate Dads and Grads
Hats off to graduates, teachers, their families and the importance of education. Here in the United States, we are fortunate to have access to various educational opportunities. However, in developing communities, impoverished farmers, producers and artisans often send their children to work in order to make enough to support the whole family. Fair Trade practices provide families with the income and stability they need to keep their children in school, instead of in the fields or factories. From Nicaragua to India, associations and collectives have used Fair Trade funds to purchase school supplies, pay for tuition and uniforms, and set up scholarships. Fair Trade revenues generated by the U.S. marketplace have helped build schools and give the gift of education in some of the most historically isolated communities around the developing world. This month, support education worldwide and honor yourGrad with a fair trade gift from Kindred Handcrafts!
Don't forget dear ol' Dad! Kindred has a gift selection for the men in your life: rubber tire wallets from Columbia, hemp and cotton shirts from Nepal and Peru, recyled bike chain frames, bracelets, and bottle openers, even boxes made from circuit boards. Check out out News and Events page for more details! Father's Day is June 21.
Haven't been to Kindred yet?
When you visit Kindred, it's like taking a tour of over 35 countries with offerings of beautiful handmade crafts, clothing and jewelry. We have huipiles (textiles) from Guatemala, felted wool birdhouses from Nepal, sterling silver jewelry from Indonesia, telephone wire baskets from South Africa, masks from Ghana, blockprinted tablecloths from India, gourds from Peru, and windchimes from the Phillipines. Kindred is full of treasures, too many to list here so come in and experience the world through fair trade.
What is Fair Trade?
Fair trade is paying artisans and producers a fair wage in their local economy. Fair Trade is assuring good working conditions and no child labor. Fair Trade is sustainable business practices and stewardship of the environment. Fair Trade helps preserve cultural traditions and values. Join us in supporting fair trade for artisans, farmers and producers around the world.
