I'm a girl's girl. I love to see women succeed. Yesterday was Day of the Girl, and it really makes you realize that women don't always get the same opportunities as men to grow and thrive and be successful in the world. I feel very blessed having been born in the U.S., and while it's not a total perfect system here, women have many opportunities to be just as, and sometimes more successful then their male counterparts.
I am a big fan of not only supporting women in the workplace, but I also like to support small business, especially if that small business supports women, is environmentally friendly, and has amazing products. Recently, I was introduced to Pebble by Kahiniwalla and immediately fell in love because they offer everything I look for when shopping for my holiday purchases.
Pebble aims to provide employment opportunities to women in rural Bangladesh, where women can work close to home, keeping families together and leaving them less susceptible to vulnerable or violent situations. Pebble has a deep commitment to Fair Trade, paying their 12,000 female employees promptly and fairly, and ensures safe working conditions while protecting the rights of children.
The handmade items from Pebble are not only ethically made, they are incredibly adorable! Sure to capture the hearts of your children this holiday season, you'll feel good knowing your purchase is contributing to making a better life for women in Bangladesh.
I'll be gifting this precious Horse Rattle and Corn Rattle to my baby nephew this Christmas. I love how vibrant the colors are on each rattle, how soft the 100% organic cotton is, and how beautifully each piece was stitched. You can tell each piece is high quality and made with care.
Best of all, both of these rattles are affordably priced at under $30 each! Not only can you find these cute little handmade plush, Pebble has a beautiful selection of hats, key rings, and nursery items. When making your purchases this holiday, be sure to keep Pebble in mind. You'll be helping to pull women out of poverty while putting smiles on your little's face.
