Fair Trade Shopping

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!! 
We are, of course, sad that we can't be in the States for all of today's festivities with our families, but also very excited because we were invited to a big Thanksgiving meal tonight! 
I'm anxious to eat tons of turkey! I don't care how sleepy it makes me! ;)

Since Friday is Black Friday and everyone will be starting on their Christmas shopping I decided to share with you one of my favorite shops! Green Heart Shop! 
www.Greenheartshop.org
Sweat Shop Free Astoria Crimson Lave dress $68.95

Green Heart is an awesome store that believes "consumers have the power to affect positive World change by supporting sustainable and fair business practices in their purchasing choices. Greenheart is Chicago’s premier eco-fair trade non-profit shop, carrying eco fair trade products made by artisans from around the world. The purchase of these products improves the lives of real people and the products are made by establishments that take care of our Earth." 

I love this! This is totally my heart! I believe we should be educated about the things we are buying and where they are coming from. I want to support businesses that empower people, not oppress them.
