As you may have know from this video of Founding Partner Siiri Morley discussing Prosperity Candle’s thoughts on fair trade, we deeply respect the fair trade movement and consider ourselves part of it. We’re very happy to share that we are further deepening our engagement with the fair trade community!
Joining the Fair Trade Federation & Green America
With the generous support of United Methodist Committee on Relief, we are joining the Fair Trade Federation and Green America as members. We will be proud to share these membership labels on our website and products, as they further illuminate our commitment to being a responsible company that prioritizes social and environmental good. We’ll be joining an impressive group of business leaders working to make change.
Teaming Up with Fair Trade Leaders for Unique Gift Sets
You might have noticed some exciting new gift sets featuring Divine Chocolate and Equal Exchange. We feel that these fair trade leaders are part of our tribe – a community of businesses that are doing incredible work to empower farmers and artisans by creating incredible products. Divine Chocolate works closely with farmers who not only earn a great wage for their work, but also ownpart of the company. And Equal Exchange is largely responsible for all the fair trade coffee that is now sold in Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks. They were a pioneer in bringing fair trade into the U.S.! More products are coming soon featuring Numi Tea and SERRV products.
We’ll always be challenging ourselves to see how much good can be wrapped up into each gift we sell. These are gifts that give back to women, fair trade groups and great nonprofit causes. Shopping with a cause goes a step further!

In the spirit of Women’s History Month, our thoughts are drawn to the many women who contribute to society in a myriad of ways while expecting nothing in return. They are hidden from view. Yet these women are transforming communities and making a positive difference in the world. They are unsung heroines.
March is about celebrating women… something we’re pretty excited about. There is so much to appreciate, so many barriers yet to topple, and so many amazing women to recognize for their accomplishments.
Ah, Valentine’s Day. Every year we look forward to it, but here’s the thing. Ever since Eve Ensler started One Billion Rising as part of her V-Day movement to end violence against women and girls, we’ve felt conflicted about this holiday.
