U.S. Ethical Shopping Guide

Gift Bags & Wrap​

I stopped buying gift bags years ago because I struggled to find any which were ethically made (I keep re-gifting my gift bags!)  So I was very excited to find the fair trade gift bags and wrapping paper I share below.

“'Weaving hope and justice' to improve the lives of women and children who are at risk from extreme poverty and trafficking." They offer beautiful, fair trade pressed flower paper gift bags (I love gifting these along with the matching cards!) and lungi jewelry gift bags.

 

Prices: $3 - $6
