How does the Greenheart Shop help to improve communities around the world?
The Greenheart Shop provides shopping experiences that support fair trade, ecofriendly products and local social enterprises. By shopping fair trade, you are able to purchase beautifully handcrafted goods, and at the same time, support community development projects, safe working conditions, and sustainable environmental practices.
Established in 2007, the Greenheart Shop is online, in the Old Town neighborhood of Chicago, and offers a wholesale tabletop line: Sobremesa. The Greenheart Shop carries products made around the world and locally in the USA. The Greenheart Shop offers a variety of merchandise spanning from personal care products to children’s gifts. You can purchase the latest fair trade fashions and clothing, as well as delicious handcrafted fair trade chocolates. There is something for men, women and people of all ages at the Greenheart Shop. The Greenheart Shop works to not only directly increase fair trade commerce, but also strives to educate consumers and raise awareness of the benefits of fair trade. We make it easy for you to impact the world, fashionably.
Before you finish eating your breakfast this morning you’ve depended on half the world. This is the way our universe is structured? We aren’t going to have peace on earth until we recognise this basic fact.
