Fair Trade Friday Subscription Box Review – October 2017
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. They contain information about Fair Trade Friday and about Mercy House Kenya, Fair Trade Friday’s parent organization.
Kalenjin Druzy Earrings – Value $18
OK, so, first of all, I absolutely love these earrings! I love druzy, and I love contrasting metals, so these are an easy win for me. The faux malachite druzy is gorgeous and captures the light beautifully. Having said that, I’m a bit confused about this card that says they were made in Honduras. I can’t usually find the earrings for sale online, but since these came on a card that says “Badala”, I was able to Google Badala and find these earrings pretty easily. According to Badala’s website, these were made in Kenya. Either is fine, but I’m just hoping this was an honest mistake. It seems a bit careless.
The Verdict: I love my subscription to Fair Trade Friday Earring OTM Club. This month’s earrings are just gorgeous! I couldn’t be happier with the selection. I am a little concerned about getting bad information about the charitable aspect of this subscription, but I tend to think it was a simple mistake. It’s a small thing, but I think it makes a big difference to people like myself who care about what they are supporting. In terms of value, $13 for an $18 pair of earrings is awesome!
