Trades of Hope - Nicole Goodsell
Trades of Hope is a member of the Fair Trade federation.
We promote education, counseling, self-care, job skills training, healthcare, & self-improvement for our Artisan partners, their families, & communities.
In areas of extreme poverty, many Artisans rely heavily on readily available natural materials like ethically collected wood, leather, bone, and feathers – which are often byproducts of food and farming industries – in order to prevent waste and maximize product quality with minimal expense. Using natural renewable materials helps Artisans earn higher wages without compromising product quality.
Our Artisan business partners are committed to ethical production and business practices that protect and preserve the environment, as well as the positive influences and heritage of their cultures.
