With the holidays approaching, it’s time to start thinking about purchasing toys that you kids will love. With the state of the world as it is, I have been double thinking my choices. I want to make good choices, choices that I believe in. I want to choose toys that will intellectually benefit the kids, toys that are environmentally responsible (as the environment is going to take a huge hit in the next few years) and will make the lives of others better (in the age of extreme wide-spread excepted bigotry and sexism).
A Business I Believe in
Kahiniwalla is a business which distributes Fair Trade products . They care about the quality of their products, consequently, they are made with the bigger picture in mind. Pebble is one of these products designed by Samantha Morshed, a social entrepreneur based in Bangladesh. Samantha’s vision for Pebble is providing a place close to rural homes in Dhaka where women could work flexible hours which is what 12,000+ rural women were looking for. These rural workplaces provide a welcome alternative to women moving to a large city to work in the garment industry leaving their families behind and making themselves vulnerable to unsafe, unjust and sometimes violent situations.
