Fair Trade Friday is a membership club that enables women to empower other women. Artisans are paid directly, and 100% of the proceeds from each box goes toward helping women around the world. They have three different subscriptions: The Original Box, the Bracelet of the Month Club, and the Earring of the Month Club. This review is of the Earring of the Month Club.

These little cards were included in my box. The one on the left lets me know that my earrings were handmade and fairly traded from a woman in Zambia. The one on the right has some information about Fair Trade Friday. On the reverse side, it has some information about Mercy House Kenya, Fair Trade Friday’s parent organization.

And here are my lovely earrings! Hooray for hoops! I love the colors, and the size is perfect for summer! I can honestly say I don’t already own anything like them at all.

Verdict: I really enjoyed my first package from Fair Trade Friday Earring OTM Club. I know these earrings were fairly traded, but honestly, $12 for a pair of earrings I like is a steal. Plus they’re exotic and will make a great conversation piece. I also really like knowing that my purchase is actually helping someone support herself and her family who might otherwise not be able to. These will be great earrings to wear all summer!

What do you think of Fair Trade Friday Earring OTM Club?

  1. I love boxes that really help others too. This will be the next box I have to check out. Thanx for reviewing it! 🙂

  2. I’ve never heard if this sub before. I’d love to see a review of the original box and the bracelet box though. It sounds like an amazing idea and a wonderful way to support those in need.

  3. This sub is new to me & sounds really neat. The earring sub wouldn’t work for me b/c of my picky ears (aka metal sensitivities), but I may have to give the Bracelet sub a try for a few months. I love seeing less well known subs featured, esp ones w/ a focus & mission as great as this. Thanks!!
