I didn't invent the phrases, but I think they're helpful as a way to catch your eye and make you want to stop and read more.
Not to be overly dramatic, but every purchase you make impacts another person. Why not make that impact a positive one?
What is purposeful purchasing? It’s aligning your purchasing with your core beliefs. Do you believe that artisans should receive a fair payment for their crafts? Do you believe people should work in a safe and respectful place? Do you want the people who produce what you buy to be good stewards of their environment? Do you believe your purchases should result in a win for all involved? You’re purposefully purchasing and being a conscious consumer and you’re in the right place.
We believe that people want to be good and do good. We believe that parents want to set a good example for their children. It can be overwhelming for some people to align their purchases with their beliefs for a myriad of reasons including time constraints, lack of resources, and desire to find reasonably priced goods. We purchase our goods from organizations or people we have first hand experience with, through personal contacts, or through companies who adhere to established fair trade policies.
