As the Holiday season begins to pick up to the mad rush at the end it is even more important to remind ourselves of the impact that our giving has on the world as well as the loved ones we are giving to.
We need to be aware that the items we purchase could be doing more harm than good and it is our job as conscious consumers to be aware and do our very best to buy goods that have a positive impact on the world in which we live.
Here at The Office Coffee Shop we do our very best to make mindful choices to sell products that support our local community as well as our community around the world. Not only are we looking to spread the word about these positive relationships we have formed but also we would like to help our community at the office by offering some fantastic gifts to give during this holiday season! These gifts are not only beautifully handcrafted items but they have a positive impact on the poverty and social injustice in the Global South.
We are doing this by selling products from the women artisans working with Global Goods Partners.
Global Goods Partners is a nonprofit enterprise creating opportunity for women in some of the world’s poorest communities by providing access to the U.S. market for fair trade products they produce. By purchasing these items that we offer you are empowering women to create sustainable change by advancing the health and well being of their families and community.
We hope you help all of us at the Office make a positive impact in your holiday shopping this season!
“We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give”
