Joobles are Too Cute for Their Own Good...3:32 PM
Ok, rarely do I promote anything without having held it in my own grubby little palms, but THIS particular toy just couldn't wait. In the spirit of promoting a better business model, and in anticipation of what could be the most adorable soft toy I've seen in ages, I have to tell you about Joobles!
Made from organic cotton and eco-friendly dyes, the Joobles are 11 inches of huggable fair-trade goodness! What's fair trade, you may ask? Fair Indigo (the site behind Joobles) tells it like this:
"Quite simply, we pay fair wages to the good people who make our clothes and accessories instead of the minimum wages that dominate the clothing market today."
I'm so liking this fair trade thing!
Joobles are a home-grown endeavor by a family in Peru (a mom, a dad, and their daughter). Fair Indigo (the company that sells the Joobles) is taking part in the Fair Trade movement in their own ways, too! Read more about it at their website.
We are looking forward to reviewing our very own Jooble in the near future, but in the meantime, would you like to win one?
Just visit the Fair Indigo website, and comment on this post with your favorite Jooble (don't worry. If you win, you'll have a chance to change your mind.) We'd also like to hear your thoughts (a few words is fine) on what you think about Fair Trade. You have until next Sunday, November 30th at 5pm CST to get your entries in. Giveaway is subject to complete site rules. (Be sure to give us a way to reach you if you win, and remember that we will never use your email or contact info for anything other than to send your prize.) Good luck!
