You may have heard the phrase “fair trade” before. It’s a concept that Growers Alliance stands behind wholeheartedly. The phrase refers to the social movement encompassing a variety of organizations that share the same goal of relieving poverty and supporting sustainable production while using a transparent source. It allows the consumer to know exactly where their product comes from and who made it. We’re known for using these ethical practices with our coffee, but did you know our handmade goods in our gift shop are sourced with the same ideals? Our products are good for both people and the environment. Here are just a few fair trade fashions you will want to add to your wardrobe this summer.
Fair trade bucket hats are the newest addition to our gift shop. Their lightweight and funky pattern make the perfect sun cap. With a 360 brim, you can keep your face and your neck safe from the sun!
These canvas totes are beach-ready. Their material is great for deflecting sand, and the wooden handle allows it to maintain shape, making it easier to find what you need. You won’t have to dig for your sunscreen in this bag.
Our handwoven baskets are strong enough to replace plastic or paper grocery bags. So keep these stylish and sustainable bags nearby whenever you go to the store or the farmers market.
When you shop our jewelry collection, you’ll find intricately beaded and wire-wrapped pieces. They make beautiful and unique gifts as handmade jewelry is always one of a kind.
Perhaps the most useful treasure of the summer, our collapsible handheld fans fit right in your bag. Opening the fan reveals a colorful kaleidoscope of patterns that catch the eye and keeps you cool.
When you shop at Growers Alliance, you can feel good knowing that your purchase provides a fair wage to the artisan who made it.
