CELEBRATE Silk Paper Garland

Add a little color and a lot of fun to your next party. Celebrate with this eco-friendly alternative to disposable garlands. Ethically handcrafted in small batches by environmentalist artisans with Prokritee, an organization in Bangladesh that provides jobs and skills training for women in under-resourced communities. Prokritee improves women's standard of living with safe jobs, fair wages, and the goal of self-reliance, helping mothers send their children to school to break the cycle of generational poverty. It employs women traditionally excluded from the market: widows, heads of households, rural poor, or landless without another source of income. They are experts at keeping waste out of landfills and waterways, using recycled sari, eco-friendly dyes, and their award-winning water-hyacinth paper.
