Fair Trade with style by Connected Goods

ConnectedGoods.com is dedicated to offering hundreds of beautiful, creative fair trade items. Fairtrade is the practice of paying fair prices to creators in developing countries.

While the concept itself isn’t entirely original, ConnectedGoods.com takes it one step further by offering you a glimpse into the producer’s life, giving you a sense as to who he or she is and how your purchase is specifically impactful.

I think we often look at fair trade businesses and think, “I want to support the cause but I don’t necessarily want the product.” What I particularly love about this site is that they offer products I would purchase regardless. This stripe clutch is a classic piece that you would expect to find in a boutique.

This beautifully on-trend brass cuff comes to you from a semi-nomadic group in Kenya. Purchasing this cuff allows the artisans to support themselves and their families.

This Kantha Quilt resembles those I have seen at several high-end stores.

The site is filled with hundreds of products, from the quilts seen above to home and garden pieces, along with clothing, jewelry, and more. Even products for children, making it your new go-to site for baby showers. And believe it or not folks, the holidays are going to be here before you know it. Check out ConnectedGoods.com for gifts your recipients would love to receive.
