Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Every person who is employed in Haiti supports 8-10 people who are unemployed. Your purchase does more by giving a child the chance to be in school or a family member an opportunity to gain medical care. Our partnership in Haiti averages 45 workers a month, making upwards of twice the minimum wage in Haiti. In 5 years, they have provided roughly 500,000 hours of work to the Haitian people.
We are proud to create gainful employment opportunities in Mexico - a place where some of the world's most talented artisans live and a country with one of the oldest and most robust handcraft cultures in the world. Our artisan partnership produces glassware using a centuries old tradition of Mexican mouth-blown recycled rustic glass, made of melted soda bottles like Coke and Pepsi. Each piece is hand-made, allowing for variations and personality in their bubbles and hues.
The Maira Wooden Taper Candle Holders as well as all of our beautiful vermeil jewelry items are made by talented Indian artisan partners. In India, nearly 70% of the population lives on less than $2 a day. It is one of the poorest countries in the world. By creating gainful employment there, we empower people in need and give you the opportunity to change lives with your purchases.
