Mother's Day Gift Guide: The Fair Trade Way
This May, there are two meaningful holidays worth celebrating! Remind mom you care this Mother’s Day while also supporting World Fair Trade Day. She deserves the best, and Ever’man is proud to carry an abundance of ethical, eco-friendly fair trade certified products that she’ll love.
What is Fair Trade?
When you purchase gifts with the Fair Trade Certified label, you can be confident that the product was sourced from a company or farm that treats its workers fairly. By choosing Fair Trade, you are empowering workers around the world, ensuring that they are being paid wages that allow them to adequately provide for their families in humane work environments. You are also defending our environment by supporting small-scale, organic and sustainable farming practices.
We’ve compiled a Mother’s Day Gift Guide you can feel good about!
Step into the Ever’man body care aisle to browse a variety of ethically-produced soaps, lotion, lip balm and more.
We suggest picking up sunscreen by Badger Balm, a Fair Trade certified family business that creates products using organic plant extracts, exotic oils, beeswax and minerals. We also love soap, hair and body care products by Dr. Bronner’s, a tried and true soapmaking company committed to practices that are socially and environmentally responsible.
Satisfy mom’s sweet tooth with our wide selection of Fair Trade chocolates!
Pick up some smooth and indulgent chocolate truffles from Alter Eco, a company that supports farmers in Peru, Ecuador, the Dominican Republic, Sri Lanka, India and Indonesia. We also carry chocolate bars from Divine Chocolate, a cooperative of cocoa farmers in Ghana; Endangered Species Chocolate, a company that donates profits to wildlife conservation groups; and Lily’s Sweets, a Fair Trade Certified company that produces gluten-free, Stevia-sweetened chocolate bars.
Does your mom run on caffeine? Then she’ll love a bag of Equal Exchange coffee beans.
