Fair Trade Gifts for the Mindful Living Advocate
Curated favorites by Kamea Chayne
There’s nothing like knowing that you’ve found the perfect gift for your loved one. But finding a great gift that also benefits global communities? It doesn’t get much more thoughtful than that.
Here to help you find the perfect mindful gift is Kamea Chayne, host of the popular Green Dreamer Podcast and a life-long student of ecological regeneration, social justice, and holistic wellness. She’s pulled together a list of her favorite Fair Trade Certified™ gifts, from chic décor to clothing and more, all tested and approved in her home.
When you choose a Fair Trade Certified gift, you’re actually giving twice: once to the recipient, and also to the farmers and workers behind it. That makes for a more meaningful gift. “Shopping Fair Trade Certified products not only ensures that our dollars empower rather than exploit,” Kamea says, “but that we’re at the same time helping to achieve social equity and environmental justice."
Whether you're shopping for a birthday, holiday, or just to show a loved one that you care, you can choose from Kamea’s picks, confident that each item was made with care to people and planet.
