Fair Trade Eco Products

Posted on June 24, 2010

Using recycled materials and promoting eco-friendly projects is always a goal of mine here at My Recycled Bags. But maybe you aren’t a crafter and want to be able to buy a unique gift or product that is eco-friendly and organic.

The Travelling Souk offers a wide range of products under their Eco Souk line. They offer Fair Trade products that are organic and eco-friendly. Fair Trade is an organized social movement and market-based approach that aims to help producers in developing countries obtain better trading conditions and promote sustainability.

Eco Souk embraces and encourages beautiful products promoting ecological and sustainable manufacturing practices and where all the workers have been paid a decent wage.

Wherever you see this symbol the product is either Fair Trade, ethical, eco-friendly, organic, recycled, green or natural. These cool-looking organic cotton oven mitts and peg bags were among my favorites at their site. Both of these items use organic, eco friendly raw materials and manufacturing methods.

So whether you want to make your own eco-friendly oven mitt or peg bag, you can check out my free patterns. Otherwise please check the unique eco-friendly products and gift ideas available at Eco Souk.

    Hey,
    I saw your site: http://www.myrecycledbags.com and thought that you and your readers might want to know about http://www.cardsforcauses.com. Cards for Causes is a site that sells cards for all occasions, but might be particularly interesting to you is that they sell recycled christmas cards on their page: http://www.cardsforcauses.com/recycled-christmas-cards. Not only that, but they also give away 20% of each purchase to the charity of the buyer’s choice. So I thought you might want to suggest this to your readers because it allows them to help the Earth in two ways, 1). purchasing Christmas cards made of 100% recycled material and 2). giving 20% of their purchase to a non-profit like the Nature Conservancy or the NRDC or even their local SPCA. It truly encompasses the Christmas Spirit of giving back.
