Ethical Shopping AND getting a deal? It’s totally possible.

Okay, y’all. I want to show you how you can shop ethically and not spend one red penny more than going to Target, Old Navy, or Belks. I’m also trying to highlight more mainstream fair trade fashion, so I wanted to tell you about this awesome company, One Mango Tree. I came across them earlier this year and got a of couple cute skirts and tanks.

One Mango Tree started as a handbag company. ImageHere is one of their bags – a good start, right? You can read more about their remarkable story here: http://www.onemangotree.com/pages/our-story

They sell all kinds of beautiful dresses, tops, skirts, jewelry, purses.

ImageHow cute and flattering is this top? It’s only $19!! LOVE IT with the boots and jeans.

You could pair it with their NEW infinity scarf that has not been added to the website yet, but they granted a sneak peek on their Facebook pageImage

AND RIGHT NOW One Mango Tree IS OFFERING 40% OFF EVERYTHING IN THEIR ONLINE SHOP! Here is the discount code. SUMMERSALE

I also LOVE the fact that you get a cute and sweet tag Imagewith your purchase and that you can send a THANK YOU NOTE to the artisan who created your new clothing! I also LOVE that everything from the organic cotton seed to the finished product, is all from Northern Uganda, an area of the world that has been conflict-ridden for many years. Where people have been forced out of their homes, their children taken and forced to be soldiers (remember the KONY 2012 and Invisible Children situation earlier this year?), and the wives taken to be “soldier’s wives” and often forced to fight and kill as well. So there is no excuse. If you are going to shop, shop this fair trade sale and help pay women in Uganda more than 3 times the going factory rate. Wear a product that creates jobs in Uganda from seed to sewn. And then rest and know that you have played a part in changing the world for someone. And that’s just where it starts.
