A Find: Gear That Gives
November 15, 2006
Why: This striking bracelet, entirely handcrafted from brilliant purple fluorite, is a piece of jewelry that stands out, that people will ask about. And when they do, youâ€™ll be proud to tell them that it was made by Afghan women who have no other source of income. As if that wasnâ€™t enough, the purchase of each bracelet preserves 2,290 square feet of rainforest. This may be the Superman of bracelets.
Gear that Gives is a unique business that works together with fair trade merchants, world artisans, and other companies to offer goods that are more than just beautiful. A handmade silk scarf provides 50 cups of food to children who need it, and a bright journal helps pay for literacy programs. Beautiful gifts that do good deeds? Deals donâ€™t get better than this.
