A reference guide to responsible shopping.
Created in 2003 this fair-trade boutique helps impoverished women worldwide make a decent living wage, reinvest in their families and build stronger communities by providing technical assistance and strategies to foster prosperity.
All the items on this site are made by underprivileged women, working toward a better future. Global Girlfriend ensures safe and fair work practices, as well the creation of eco-friendly products that range from clothing, accessories, jewelry, home goods, bath & body and paper goods.
Global Girlfriend believes the promise to alleviate poverty is through the support and investment in women “because when women have an income, they reinvest in themselves and in their children’s health, education and nutrition, building stronger families and communities over time.”
Aside from this collection of artisan goods, they also offer you the opportunity to support directly various causes and needs of impoverished communities. You can purchase a year of school lunches for an AIDS orphan, help send children to school, pay a teachers salary and many -many more contribution options to make the world a better place.
