Fair Trade Friday Earring of the Month Club September 2018 Review

This little card was included in my box. They contain information about Fair Trade Friday and about Mercy House Kenya, Fair Trade Friday’s parent organization.

This card was also enclosed. I think this is the most in-depth info card I have ever received on a global artisan! It’s pretty inspiring stuff!

Jordan Earrings by ViBella Jewelry, Haiti – Retail Value $22

These earrings are so unique! They’re made of ethically-sourced horn! I don’t know what kind of horn, but they are so glossy and beautiful! I love them. I think they’re a great color for fall.

The Verdict: I love my subscription to Fair Trade Friday Earring OTM Club. This month’s earrings are really different! I think I will get a lot of use out of them this fall. I also really like the charitable giving aspect of this subscription, it makes the earrings just that much more special! I am also very happy with the value, having received a $22 pair of earrings for just $13, including free shipping. It’s such a bargain!

To Wrap Up:

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

  1. The only thing that bothers me about this is the parent organization.

    The probably do not give these jobs to pagans or atheists.

    So, much as I like the earrings, I can’t support them.

    • It sounds like they will accept any woman who needs the help. I will suggest that some people don’t have the luxury of fighting for their religion because access to food, water and safety are far bigger concerns. I think it’s a step in the right direction to reduce the suffering that some women face, you know? If there was an organization that was not affiliated with religion that offered an earring/jewelry/fair trade box subscription, I would be happy to subscribe to that too!

  2. What does “ethically sourced horns” mean exactly? They asked the cow or goat if they could cut it off?

    • I’d guess they’re byproducts of the slaughtering process. So ethical.

  3. I really like those earrings. FYI – On their site they mention that they use horn from goats and cows in their jewelry.

    • Thanks Beth!

  4. So beautiful, love it!

  5. I love, love, love this subscription! I couldn’t figure out what the earrings were made of this month, so I’m glad someone knew.
