Frame of mind
Conscious consuming, just like recycling, requires effort and the right perspective. One easy way to better our world through shopping is to purchase fair-trade goods.
Suppliers of fair-trade goods, such as Ten Thousand Villages, guarantee that artisans from all over the world are paid fair wages for the items they produce. The frame and bowl pictured are fair-trade goods made from recycled magazine pages. Not only are these gifts to the environment, but they benefit the receiver and producer as well. Now what could be better than three gifts for the price of one?
