The Gifting Store
is an online gift
store that offers unique gifts
with a purpose. We've combined our love of eco friendly gift giving
with our deep rooted sense of responsibility to protect the environment. In addition, our business model incorporates partnerships with fair trade
companies that guarantee the ethical treatment of artisans in developing nations. Our unique gifts
are a collection of gift
items that either protect our natural resources or through fair trade practices enable an artisan to rise above poverty.
Our eco-friendly gifts are manufactured from products that in one way or another protect our natural resources from depletion by utilizing sustainable materials or prevent materials that would have ended up as trash from polluting our environment. We've found artisans who create unique gifts from earth-friendly materials or recycled, repurposed or upcycled materials. The Gifting Store
represents a number of fair trade artisans
. We believe strongly in fair trade. Fair trade
is a practice in place to promote artisans of developing countries in the global marketplace and at the same time protect them from unethical and immoral practices. Every unique gift
purchased from a fair trade artisan
allows that artisan the opportunity to lift themselves out of poverty in a sustainable manner. Anyone who receives a gift
created by a fair trade artisan
will not only treasure the gift for its beauty and quality but will delight in the fact that it helped this individual improve the quality of their life.
