The Subscription Box: FAIR Treasure
The Cost: $30 a month plus shipping (Free shipping with 3 month plan)
The Products: Each box will contain at least $30 in retail value of ethically sourced treasures. Typically, your treasure box will contain 2-3 items.
Fair Treasure includes a card with each item that gives you the background on the maker and the fair trade practices involved in producing the item.
Sanctuary Spring Holiday Card – Value $5
This card is handmade with recycled paper. The entire card is designed via paper cut outs – and the detail work is beautiful.
About Sanctuary Spring:
Sanctuary Spring exclusively employs women who are escaping prostitution in the Philippines. Some were physically forced, some were tricked, some were forced into prostitution by the relentness of poverty. All of them want a new beginning, and your purchase of Sanctuary Spring cards sustains programs that assist them in their restoration process while also enabling them to provide food and education for their families.
Fair Trade Holiday Elephant Ornament – Value $8?
I couldn’t find a retail price for this ornament, so I’m estimating the value. It’s made in Nepal with 100% wool.
About Fair Trade Holiday:
Many of the artisans who make Fair Trade Holiday products are women. Everyone is provided with a safe and healthy working environment, living wages and a range of benefits. Your purchases help to support these artisans, their families and their communities as well as helping to preserve their traditional crafts.
Mata Traders Dueling Triangles Necklace – Value $32
This is probably my favorite jewelry piece ever from Fair Treasure. I love the mix of gold and black:
Verdict: I thought this was a great holiday box from Fair Treasure. The card and ornament are very appropriate, and the necklace is great year round! And the value is about $45. What do you think of the December Fair Treasure box?
