Made With Love

Posted in Fashion by Shannon South on November 11, 2010

Today I wore a set of recycled rubber bracelets that I bought at a really great gift shop in Maine called Rock Paper Scissors. We stopped there on our long drive back from Pop!Tech a couple of weeks ago. The shop owner told me a bit about the bracelets, but I wanted to know more, so I searched and found the company here. These bracelets are made by women in Mali and providing them with a viable means of support. They are sold to raise funds for L’Empire des Enfants, a school for homeless children in Senegal. I love what they do and it is so nice to know you are directly supporting people in need when you purchase their products.
