Fair Trade Focus: Environmental Responsibility

We encourage our staff and artisan partners to employ sustainable practices and to use recycled and natural materials when possible.

At Ten Thousand Villages, our goal is sustainability: not just for our artisan partners, but also for the environment. From our company headquarters to our artisan workshops around the world, we strive to minimize our carbon footprint while maximizing our impact on disadvantaged artisans.  This is why you will find many of our products crafted from items saved from landfills the world over, including fish feed bags, snack bags, soda cans, orange peels, and newspapers.  It is also why advice and grants from Ten Thousand Villages go to artisans on a regular basis to reduce pollution and energy consumption in the production process.
