What do Earth Day and Fair Trade Have in Common?
Earth Day, celebrating a 45 year movement, brings together hundreds of millions of people participating in events and activities that protect the earth and our environments. Always celebrated on Aprill 22, global citizens from over 185 countries clean up rivers, parks, conduct educational programs, plant trees, organize rallies to impact policy, and simply gather to re-commit to conscience living with a smaller carbon footprint. Fair Trade, too, is a global movement asking earthlings to live their lives with intention and guided by thier values. One of the nine principles of fair trade is environmental stewardship - taking care of the earth. Fair trade farmers are trained to employ sustainable practices in their planting and harvest. Fair trade artisans use organic or recycled materials, natural and vegetable dyes in textiles, or reduce waste in their production. Earth Day and Fair Trade are rooted in the causes of people and planet.
Kindred will be participating in local Earth Day events the weekend of April 18 and 19. See our event page for details.
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.
This month, April, we are excited to have our spring clothing, accessories and even new style of sandals by SSeko Designs! Ask staff for a demonstration and be the first to get a pair of these versatile sandals!
