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 $12.99 a month 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.

Daisy Earrings by Basha Boutique, Ethiopia  – Retail Value Unavailable

OK, these are officially the most unique earrings in my collection! They seem to be made of both a recycled metal and a recycled textile. The daisies are on fabric, so funky! These have such a fun boho vibe! They were handmade in Ethiopia by women from Basha Boutique, an organization that provides skills training and employment to impoverished women.

The Verdict: I love my subscription to Fair Trade Friday Earring OTM Club. This month’s earrings are just my style! I think I will get a lot of use out of them. I also really like the charitable giving aspect of this subscription, it makes the earrings just that much more special! This month’s earrings are not available online for sale, but I feel they are absolutely worth the cost of the subscription.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the September box. Order by the 15th of each month to get that month’s box.

  2. I think a sub to this might be a good Christmas gift to myself this year. 🙂 I really love this month’s selection. It’s a great look.
