Why Fair Trade?
Our mission is to "Encourage and Facilitate the Care of Self, Humanity, and Planet Earth".
Enchanted Valley Studios firmly believes in the principles of Fair Trade, and is committed to supporting the global community through Fair Trade agreements. We work hard to discover and procure products that meet the criteria of helping to nurture self-care AND providing support to artisans in developing countries around the world.
As an added benefit, one of the tenets of Fair Trade is environmental sustainability, encouraging the reuse, reclaiming, and recycling of items whenever possible. That means Fair Trade partnerships are a win-win-win opportunity.
