Territory bag – Act Justly print
Freeset makes bags, bangles, and tees. Their cotton is fair trade and organic. I love the Act Justly messenger bag, but they also have stunning bags with braided sari trim around the tops, as well as comfy tees, and cute, braided bangles for stocking stuffers.
Why I Like This:
Freeset isn’t just a business. These guys are located in the largest red light district of Kolkata, India, and they offer jobs to women trapped in the sex trade. The women in their employ receive fair wages, health care, and pension plans. They enter the job with little or no skills, and Freeset provides job training and a community where they have access to child care, literacy classes, and budgeting and debt management classes. Our purchases from Freeset support the 160+ women employed there, making lasting changes for their children and families, as well as the farmers growing the fair trade, organic cotton for the bags and shirts.
Slave-Free Christmas Challenge:
This Christmas, I’ve challenged myself to shop my entire Christmas list from organizations that are helping people, not hurting people. Today, 27 million men, women, and children live as someone else’s property. Slaves are making the items that I’m buying to celebrate the birth of my Lord and Savior. Somehow I don’t think He’s blessed by the blood on His birthday presents. For more information on my Slave-Free Christmas project, click here.
