When giving gifts do you ever think about giving a gift with a little extra meaning? I personally find great pleasure in giving gifts with a purpose, gifts that support artisans around the world, and I love finding special handmade gifts to give my family and friends on special occasions.
Greater Good makes giving gifts with extra meaning a little easier, and at the Greater Good shop you can find everything from specially handcrafted wooden sculptures to weaved bags and ornaments, but something all of the products at the Greater Good shop have in common is that the products being sold had to pass the stringent principles of the Greater Good purpose. Since 1999, Greater Good has given back more than $35 million to charities around the world.
Greater Good only sells products where the artisans and workers have been given a fair trade value for their work, the organization does not sell products that harm people or animals in any way, and only products produced under good work conditions are sold at Greater Good.
GreaterGood.com has teamed up with NOVICA to give shoppers access to more than 3500 artisan products, and GreaterGood and NOVICA are among the largest importers and resellers of fairly-traded artisan products. The artisan sector is the second largest employer in the developing world, and through artisan activity communities can find jobs, sustain ancient traditions, foster sustainable development, and create a greater empowerment to poor communities.
In addition to supporting artisans and workers around the world, Greater Good also support causes such as Alzheimer’s, Animal Rescue, Autism, Breast Cancer, Diabetes, Hunger Relief, Literacy, Rainforest and Veterans.
The Greater Good home store is full of handmade, artisan products from all corners of the world, and every item helps support a cause. Take a look at these cobolt blue hand crafted glasses and this stunning carafe set, these have been especially designed by artists Javier Gutiérrez and Efrén Canteras.
I am not much of an online shopper when it comes to clothing for myself, but I will admit that this stunning sleeveless Sparkling Waterfall top with embellishment is calling my name. It was made in India, and the violet three-tiered, cascading front is like nothing I have seen in any local stores. You can find lots of unique clothing at the Greater Good shop, and every purchase you make helps people, pets, and the planet.
And check out these stunning pieces of handcrafted jewelry made of artisans around the world.
