Shop & Product Review: Screen Printed Wallet from Greenheart

greenheart wallet

My husband was very proud of himself when he came home with a 100% recycled product from Home Depot today. He’s on the ‘Green’ bandwagon and now I have something else to tell him about. Fair Trade. Fair Trade supports sustainable community development by ensuring that the artisans making the products are paid fair living wages.
Greenheart is an eco-fair trade non-profit shop, carrying both fair trade and eco friendly products including handbags, wallets, lotion, and cookbooks. Greenheart believes consumers have the power to affect positive World change by supporting sustainable and fair business practices in their purchasing choices.

What is Eco-Fair Trade? Greenheart follows the guiding principles of “Fair Trade”. “Eco” signifies that our products are made using the most sustainable materials and methods whenever possible. At Greenheart, we are both “Fair to producers, and good to the Earth”.

The product and giveaway featured here is Greenheart’s fair trade wallet measuring a practical 8.5″ x 5″ x 1″. The wallet has a three-side zip closure, four section accordion dividers, a zip coin pocket, and credit card slips and I found that there is plenty of left over room for my phone.

Joobles are made of 100% soft organic yarns and eco-friendly dyes and are about 11 inches tall making them super snuggly and perfect for little hands to hold.

Joobles are very special in that they are made fairly in Peru under fair trade conditions which is a rapidly gJoobles from FairIndigo.com
