  1. Fair Trade Together for Pollinators

    Let your love for pollinators shine with these inspired goods!

    Soothing, natural, peaceful, or "just plain sweet" pollinator products can infuse your home or store with a sense of wellbeing and balance. Celebrate and respect the important work that these small, imperiled creatures do by first educating yourself about simple ways to protect their habitats and second, by socially connecting with and shopping from international companies and artisan workshops like us, who care for our shared earth and people. 

    Look and shop a variety of inspired-by-pollinators goodies brought to you by compassionate businesses from the FairTradeFederation.org (product directory under each photo).
