Why do I pledge to buy handmade?
Buying handmade is better for our environment, lets us connect with the producer, and lets us give a truly unique and special gift for our loved ones. In the day of child labor issues, poor working conditions, and mass produced items that leaves no room for individuality it is time we all become more aware of how our purchases have an environmental and social implications.
Buying handmade could not be easier!!
There are so many wonderful craft shows to shop from. Etsy, and many handmade artists with their own websites.
And of course you can make your own gifts which I plan to do plenty of this year. No mass produced purchase can replace the beauty of a handmade item.
