Do you have a Greenheart?

It never fails to amaze me how awesome it is to connect to customers that come in to shop where I work.  I come in to contact with amazing people every day hearing stories, passing on advice, or just connecting on a personal level with women shopping in our store.  Today, I saw the coolest clutch ever.  Little did I know, the coolest clutch ever had an even cooler back story.

Enter Greenheart.  Greenheart is a Fair Trade organization based out of Chicago and is a nonprofit, eco friendly store.  For those who are not familiar with the definition of Fair Trade, it is a way to promote stability and support producers and artisans in developing countries.  While, there is no exact definition, this is the main idea.

Moving on… Greenheart carries products that are made by artisans from all over the world, sells them to you, and sends 15 – 30% back to the producers.  Learn more about one of their 52 Artisans here.  With products for your home and kitchen, as well as jewelry, journals, purses, wallets and more, there is something for everyone.  They have some great gift ideas for that special person or special event you have coming up.

Get shopping… and save the world while you’re at it! 😉  Don’t be shy!  They’re on Twitter, Facebook and have their own blog!  It’s definitely worth taking a look!  Have a Greenheart.
