Jewelry With A Story from HumanKind Fair Trade

Jewelry With A Story from HumanKind Fair Trade

My first photography gig in San Luis Obispo was for HumanKind's Eco Fashion Show! That was over 3 years ago and recently I got to work with HumanKind again photographing their gorgeous Fair Trade accessories for their online shop!

What is Fair Trade?:

Trade in which fair prices are paid to producers in developing countries.

"[Fair Trade creates] opportunities for economically and socially marginalized farmers and artisans. Fair trade is a strategy for poverty alleviation and sustainable development achieved through long-term trading partnerships." Learn more on the HumanKind website HERE.

More than just jewelry, these pieces tell a story and purchasing them helps build lives and a future for artisans all over the world! Ethical is the new black!

Fellow SLO blogger, Rebecca aka @relmstyle modeled the accessories an ran around town with me on a beautiful Sunday morning. Here are some of my favorite pieces!
