Think Fair Trade this holiday season
The holiday season is not only for spending time with friends and family and giving gifts but also for thinking about our impact on the Earth and the people on it.
At Trios Studio, we have long been concerned about how mining practices and the broader jewelry industry affect the environment and communities in developing countries. We have made a point to do things "right" since we opened, and we educate everyone who will listen about these topics.
As consumers, we all have a responsibility to encourage more retailers and suppliers to source their materials responsibly. The choices we make of where to spend our dollars give us the power to effect change at a grassroots level. As you're doing your holiday shopping this season, think about and ask where these products are coming from, how the materials are being obtained and what the working conditions are like for the people who make them.
During the whole month of December, Trios Studio will be focusing on responsible sourcing. Come see our Fair Trade Gems and jewelry at our Open House party on Dec. 7. All Fair Trade jewelry will be on sale Dec. 1 through Dec. 24.
If you're looking for a special gift that you can feel good about giving, there's still time for us to custom design something for you before the holidays! Give us a call or stop by the store to see what we can create for you using Fair Trade Gems and recycled metals.
