(Sisal and Brass Drop Necklace from Global Goods Partners $22)
September’s Ethical Spotlight is a wonderful ethical boutique– Global Goods Partners (GGP). GGP is a nonprofit enterprise dedicated to alleviating poverty and promoting social justice. Founders Catherine Lieber Shimony and Joan Shifrin, while traveling around the globe as international developers were inspired to find effective income-generating opportunities for women and their communities thus in 2005 Global Goods Partners was born.
GGP is a carefully curated shop of fair trade accessories and home goods handmade by artisans in more than 20 countries. I think it is just amazing that GGP has such a huge huge reach and impact–they work with 40 fair trade partners, that collectively employ 3,000 women artisans, spanning over 4 continents–incredible!!
I think you can really see GGP’s truly global reach in their boutique. Their fashion and home goods are super eclectic and for me shows off the variety of traditional craftsmanship in all the different cultures they represent.
