Although I don’t do it perfectly by any measure, one of our family’s growing priorities is buying fair trade products that we know support individuals around the world in a healthy, sustainable way.
(Yes, we still have mass produced plastic toys and I’m just beginning my search for fair trade chocolate and coffee, but we’re taking baby steps toward better choices.)
For that reason, I am always on the look out for fair trade shops online and in our backyard, and I’m excited to have discovered another one in Lil’soak + Friends, which curates and designs stylish products through small artisan groups around the world!
A portion from each sale you make at Lil’soak + Friends funds education, shelter, health, food and micro-loans for these artisan groups and their communities, while leaving you with a beautiful product to show off so that you can share the story of its creation and inspire others to choose fair trade as well!
At Lil’soak + Friends, you’ll find products from around the world…
- Products sewn by women in their homes in the Philippines
- Handcrafted items from young Deaf people in China who might not otherwise find work
- Jewelry and bags made by girls who have been rescued from sexual exploitation in Asia
- Items made by HIV-positive women in Ethiopia
The founders of Lil’soak + Friends were looking for a way to help people, not just with charity but by empowering them with skills and providing micro loans. Together, they have worked to curate a variety of handmade goods from around the world, and to show you the faces behind the products your purchase.
