Recycling is the Key

Waste from the Philipines has been turned into unique whimsical crafts. This greeting card is made with old computer parts and scrap materials. 

Great for any occasion. And they remind us all that recycling is key to decreasing the amount of waste in our landfills. 

New "Trash" Bags available @ Fair & Green

These functional zippered bags are made of trash. 270 tons of plastic waste is generated every day in Ghana, 85% from non-biodegradable bags containing purified water and ice cream. 

While addressing an environmental issue, sustainable, Fair Trade jobs have been created to make the plastic into fashionable, functional bags. 

These wallets and coin purses are just the beginning. We even have beach bags. 

Prices range from $5-20.

Soda Can Earrings

These recycled soda can earrings are from Kenya and are made by a women's cooperative.
