We offer stylish, environmentally and socially responsible products, from suppliers and artists who share a similar mission and purpose to make a difference.
Every item features our green "eco-icons" as well as a description, identifying its environmentally or socially responsible attributes. Our hope is that you will share that green tidbit with others when using your item(s). By sharing you help further the mission to show how easy it is to leave a green footprint.

Just a little reminder that your purchase is providing much-needed, fair wages for a family or village in a developing country.
It's also a reminder to think globally, as well as locally. We support "buying local" but we also believe in supporting those whose skills and crafts are their family's only means of income. They deserve to be paid a fair wage in safe working conditions, and to have their craftsmanship appreciated by those who can't travel across the globe to buy them first-hand.
