Need a new back pack? Check out Taaluma Totes. Each backpack funds a microloan for a person in the country where its fabric originated. Currently they are using fabrics from Ghana, Indonesia, and Uganda, but it sounds like that list will soon be expanding. Love the idea. "Carry Taaluma, Carry a Country!"
With much of the US still in a deep freeze, and being only 1 month into winter, we're going to highlight Threads 4 Thought. They make stylish comfy clothes to keep you warm and looking great. Plus they use sustainable materials and ethically minded manufacturing. All things we can get on board with! And since we're from the midwest - being warm and ending sentences with prepositions are things we like to do!
