In the Bag: Fair-trade Purses

Want winning summer style? Look no further with Mar Y Sol handbags in amazing candy-colored hues and unique silhouettes like night-on-the-town clutches and perfect-for-the-beach totes.  Each bag is hand-dyed and hand woven using natural renewable materials such as sisal, raffia, and baobab bark.  The inspiration comes from the exotic island of Madagascar and all bags are made in a sweatshop-free, fair-trade community where the sales benefit the education of the children in the community.  We love the fact that they support artisan partners to generate sustainable economic development and stimulate cross-cultural exchange. Hands down, these purses are a win-win all around.

Greenista Cocktail Factoid: Fair Trade is an organized social movement and market-based approach that aims to help producers in developing countries obtain better trading conditions and promote sustainability. The movement advocates the payment of a higher price to producers as well as social and environmental standards.
