Coconut Asymmetrical Earrings, Ecuador
Simple, fun coconut earrings.
Eco-friendly. Fair Trade. Handmade.
These earrings are handcrafted by artisans working for Minga Fair Trade Imports. Minga was founded in 1997 with the goal of improving education in Ecuador, increasing public knowledge of fair trade in the U.S., and supporting the concept of a sharing wage. Artisans receive enough money to pay for essential expenses and enough to reinvest in their families and communities.
Minga means "communal work day". When people come together to work toward a common goal that benefits those involved, a minga is formed. It is a word that fits the goals that this company accomplishes every day.
