Friends, I just have to tell you – my mind is EXPLODING with all the fair trade, ethical fashion supporters there are out there. Every time I search for something new I am coming up with more and more options for making purchases that make a difference.

ethical fair trade options

Do you see my tabs open up there? Those are ALL different companies, individuals, ministries, businesses who provide products for sale for the support of changing families and lives around the world. And those aren’t even the ones we’ve already featured – I can’t even begin to touch on them all! Mind.Blowing. At some point I’m going to have to stop, it would appear the opportunities are endless!

It is so possible to change the way we shop, and so encouraging to see so many businesses changing the way things are produced. It has started, and we can join to be a part of the movement to change lives.

That brings me to our feature company for today:
