Products That Change Lives
Buy The Change is a socially conscious brand focused on e-commerce and retail as a long term, grass roots solution to issues faced by women in the developing world. By partnering with talented women to bring their handmade goods to the American market, we offer our customers the opportunity to have a direct impact. Every product we sell is ethically traded and comes to you directly from the hands of the women who made it.
Why we do what we do...
Women around the globe have incredible talent, determination and resilience. What they most often lack is opportunity. With income, women can gain safety, feed and educate their children, reduce dependency and have hope for the future. A girl whose mother has an income is much less likely to die of malnutrition, be taken out of school, be married very young or be trafficked into the sex trade.
We want to make it easy for you to find beautiful, high quality handmade products that change lives.
When you shop with us you are directly supporting women around the globe.
Every item carries the story of the woman who created it. From mountain villages in Guatemala, refugee camps in northern Thailand, the red light district in Kolkata, India and the slums of Nairobi, Kenya, woman use their skills and determination to create a better life for themselves and their families. Many are using traditional craft skills passed from mother to daughter for generations. Be part of the solution.
