Artisans from India and El Salvador work with sustainable and recycled materials including recycled tires. These tires litter the roadsides and provide a means to breed mosquitoes that carry malaria, so removing them helps to create a healthier environment. Through fair trade partnerships, these artisans are making economic and social progress. Access to housing, sanitation and healthcare has improved, and children are attending school rather than having to work to help with the family income.
In order to purchase these items, you must be part of one of our fundraising events for a school or nonprofit.
