A Find: Global Girlfriends

The next time you buy a knit scarf or a beaded bracelet, buy it from Global Girlfriends and support women around the world. Global Girlfriends, as seen in InStyle and Organic Style, is a fair-trade boutique that sells hand-made goods from women’s non-profit programs and women’s cooperatives. Just think about it: by buying a coral and metal choker – as chic as any you’d find at Anthropologie – you can support the Tara Project, a New Delhi, India-based organization that helps women gain awareness, rights and human dignity in order to combat poverty. Or by snagging a crochet poncho – stylish yet comfortable and easy to throw on – you can support Brazilian women in Coopa-Roca, South America’s largest shantytown. Global Girlfriends supports women from the U.S. and from some of the poorest countries in the world. So why be a slave to the man when, by buying fabulous crafts, you can support women?
