Looking for a small way to make a difference? Well, guess what? It’s Fair Trade month!
Since the beginning, west elm has been committed to making the world a better place through our business, in ways both large and small. Did you know: west elm was the first-ever home retailer to offer Fair Trade Certified™ goods? By shopping Fair Trade, your purchase goes towards helping fund Fair Trade Certified Factories around the world, which benefits local economies and individual workers’ families through provided premiums.
This month we’re celebrating Fair Trade with a DIY crafting event at local west elm stores. Join us on October 20th for a coaster craft designed by Brittany Watson Jepsen of The House That Lars Built. You’ll be using felt balls handcrafted by our Fair Trade artisan partner, Everest, a family-run Fair Trade Certified™ factory in Nepal. But wait, it gets even better: 100% of the ticket price will be donated to Everest to further support Fair Trade initiatives, like earthquake rebuilding efforts.* Hurry, spots are limited! secure your seat now for $10.
