Plastic-Free Life And Ethical Business

CATEGORY: LIFESTYLE, VIDEOS

Can we live a plastic-free life? That is the question that many of us ask today. After meeting and interviewing several ladies who advocate for low plastic or plastic-free life, I have to say that it’s possible.

In this interview, you will get to know Alexis McGivern, who has been living plastic-free since 2013. She runs No Plastic Please blog (Instagram:
@noplasticplease1). I met her at a workshop organized by Lilly Milligan Gilbert, who is also presenting her ethical and socially-responsible brand in the video. She is a founder of Tallis (Instagram: @thetallis), a Geneva-based brand that makes luxury yet contemporary fur products, using responsibly sourced materials.

SEP Jordan – Empowering Refugee Women

CATEGORY: VIDEOS

SEP Jordan is a brand, but most importantly, it is a social enterprise. By wearing one of the keffiyehs, you share a story. It’s a story of empowerment, craftsmanship, and hope.

Roberta Ventura, co-founder, and CEO of SEP Jordan has decided to create a company that will bring employment as a serious alternative to aid.

I discovered SEP Jordan through a friend of mine a year ago. We were talking about brands that instead of trying to only make a profit, focus on making a difference.

Can Community Trade Shea Butter Empower Women?

CATEGORY: BEAUTY, VIDEOS

This year The Body Shop celebrates 25 years of Community Trade partnership with Tungteiya Women’s Association which covers its Shea butter needs. Over the years, the Association grew from 50 to more than 600 women from 11 communities near Tamale, Northern part of Ghana.

In addition to fair and regular wage, The Body Shop pays into a Premium fund which is managed by the women through Northern Ghana Community Action Fund (NOGCAF). The premium is transparently and democratically invested in community projects (schools, access to health centers and clean water, sanitation, a building to stare shea nuts, etc.). It has positively impacted the lives of 49,000 people.
