At first glimpse, Global Goods Partners seems like a retail website that sells beautiful gifts with an exotic flair. This is true - Global Goods Partners does sell eye-catching, boho-chic items. But their story goes well beyond that.
The brainchild of Catherine Lieber Shimoni and Joan Shifrin, Global Goods Partners is a nonprofit organization that sells to give back. Having learned that for long term community development there first needs to be a stable source of income, Shimoni and Shifrin are on a mission to create sustainable income for their artisans through their Fair Trade certified operation.
For the socially minded, responsible shopper, Global Goods Partners is a piece of paradise online: chunky jewelry, home decor, and even handmade baby toys are available here.
If you plan to shop, GGP may offer a chance to do good and give while at it. [Source: Global Good Partners]
