Green/Fair Trade (or both) Shopping

GreatGreenGoods: a shopping blog devoted to the green, eco-friendly, consumer. They comb the web looking for products to help you live a greener life!   (almost all products featured are made out of recycled materials).

Justice Clothing Co: "You can help stop the destruction of communities at home and abroad by buying clothing made by workers who are treated fairly. If you don't mind buying clothing made by slaves, children, indentured servants, or workers who are paid pennies a day, we are not your kind of store."

Global Exchange Fair Trade Store: "All of our Fair Trade Stores set an example of working responsibly with world craft producers. We generate income for thousands of artisans and their families in over 40 countries, by operating according to Fair Trade Criteria. "

Syracuse Cultural Workers: "We see cultural work as an essential part of and support for political and economic change. Many of our materials celebrate movements for social change and their leaders, thus helping to legitimize history that is largely ignored or trivialized by commercial media and school textbooks. SCW also helps to unite socially concerned artists with a growing audience hungry for meaningful artwork."

Real Goods: "Recognizing that the world's dependence upon fossil fuels has invariably led to the degradation of our atmosphere and environment, we have strived to demonstrate the need and practicality for renewable energy technologies that are clean, cost-effective, and non-polluting."

Equal Exchange Coffee, Tea and Chocolate: "Equal Exchange's mission is to build long-term trade partnerships that are economically just and environmentally sound, to foster mutually beneficial relations between farmers and consumers and to demonstrate, through our success, the viability of worker cooperatives and fair trade. "

Code Pink Online Store: Sweatshop free clothing items available. Support peace, Code Pink and sweatshop free clothing manufacture.

No Sweat Apparel: "Our gear is produced by independent trade union members in the US, Canada, and the developing world. We believe that the only viable response to globalization is a global labor movement. "

Ten Thousand Villages: "Since 1946 Ten Thousand Villages has supported the work of literally tens of thousands of artisans in over 30 countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East, making us one the largest fair trade organizations in North America. Working with more than 100 artisan groups, we purchase fine pieces from craftspeople with whom we have longstanding, nurturing relationships…helping to bring dignity to their lives."

Ecomall.com: "Shop With A Consciousness in EcoMall's Green Marketplace"

Pangea: Vegan and Cruelty Free. "Pangea Sells Only Goods Made in Countries Where Labor Laws or Unions Are in Place to Protect the Workers! We Don't Sell Any Products Made in China or Other Countries Known for Sweatshops."

Alternative Outfitters : An "online resource for fashionable leather alternatives and cruelty-free products for a compassionate lifestyle."

Rawganique : Organic Cotton, Linen, & Hemp Clothing & Home Products. "Please consider our website of sustainable products a quiet, old-fashioned retreat from the hecticness and rampant chemicalizations that are characteristic of the modern, conventional world -- we at Rawganique.com wholeheartedly embrace the Slow Is Beautiful Movement (slow living, slow food, slow cities, slow islands). May love, peace, purity of mind and spirit, happiness, goodwill, mindfulness, health, light, and sustainability prevail. "

This blog is an ever evolving project. I write about local and national politics from an independent-left point of view. I'm also exploring ways to live with less impact on the planet and trying new ways to be an involved and active citizen.

I welcome your feedback. If you comment to one of my posts and you are not a livejournal user, please sign your name at the bottom of your comment. Thanks!
