Candles from Rescued Wine
Rescued Wine aspires to re-purpose wine bottles with new candle life using environmentally responsible ingredients. Wine bottles are collected, cleaned and cut by hand, creating eco-friendly soy candles with fragrances inspired by wine.
A portion of every sale helps animals in need by donating to “not profit” rescue groups. Scents available in 8 and 11 oz. glass candles and organic soaps too. www.rescuedwinecandles.com
Chocolate by Alma
Enjoy the all natural, locally sourced ingredients (in Portland, OR) of this chocolate and support fair trade practices too!
Alma (meaning “to nourish the soul”) Chocolates began in 2005 in the kitchen of owner, Sarah Hart, where she perfected the signature ‘edible gold leaf’ and has grown to include organic small batch ice-creams, chocolatey drinks, espressos and choco-centric baked goods.
The house chocolate is from an organic single estate that Sarah has personally researched. Try a variety in the 10 piece sampler found at www.almachocolate.com. For other ethically sourced chocolate companies, click here and look for the “ethically traded” or “fair trade” logo on the packaging.
Jewelry from Global Girlfriend & Selen Design
All women-made, fair trade products with the goal to dream big and change lives. Each item you buy helps fund a seed money micro-grant through Camfed (Campaign for Female Education) to help a woman in Africa launch a small business venture to support herself and her family.
Our favorite choice for eco-friendly accessorizing includes the Healing Hearts stretch bracelet made from recycled magazine paper and $.50 of every purchase is used for health care of children in need.
Selen Design jewelry is all hand-made in an environmentally-conscious facility based in New York. Pieces reflect an earthly flavor inspired by the “wonders of Mother Nature” and are made primarily of allergen-free pewter. (Note: ‘Coral Tree Branch’ necklace featured here.)
Larkspur Lingerie & PACT Undergarments
Larkspur uses organic cotton, silk blend knits, repurposed silks, and stretch laces to combine comfort and sexiness in their intimates’ collection. Their chic designs are produced responsibly with locally sourced soft, eco-friendly fabrics hand sewn in Los Angeles, U.S.A.
PACT Undergarments for men and women are certified organic and fair trade, made with super soft, non-GMO, organic cotton seed grown at family run farms, ethically manufactured with fabrics that feel good and respect the environment.
Perfume by Prairieland Herbs
Sold in ¼ ounce tins, these solid perfumes are hand-made using local supplies when possible and certified organic sunflower oil, beeswax, and essential oils. Offered in 8 different scents ranging from sandalwood to lilac and rose.
