Fair trade is actually multitasking. Buying from a fair trade company not only allows you to purchase an item that you deemed that you needed but allows for you to help someone across the globe feed their family or climb their way out of poverty. You see.... it is not just the necklace or earrings or scarf that you see before you, it is a means of income to those that don't usually have a means of income.
The order went smoothly with receiving the package within a week. I believe I ordered in the last part of one week and I had it by the mid part of the next week. Then, it came in a pink package with Pura Vida in white lettering on the outside of the package. It was packed really well. The quality of the product is better than most bracelets you would find in stores. Or rather you would find these in high end stores, not your normal usual run of the mill bracelet. This is serious quality!
Passion Lilie is based out of NOLA. That's New Orleans for those that aren't from here. I just so happen to come across the company researching fair trade companies and I was super stoked to be helping out a local business as well. I bought the Palazzo pants and a scarf.
