We Think Beauty Should Be More Than Skin Deep

At Trade as One we work with several outstanding producers doing great work on the front-lines of poverty. Buying products from these producers enables them to carry on making a difference and an impact. Alaffia is a producer of ours based in Togo, West Africa, who source and supply unrefined shea butter for a wide range of delectable, all-natural body care products. Alaffia was founded as a way to alleviate poverty in West Africa and help communities remain self-sustainable through the fair trade of indigenous resources. We’re excited to share some of the story of Alaffia with you and to encourage you to check out our Alaffia body-care products.

Right now, in the first week of March, Alaffia are opening a brand new coconut co-operative in Togo which will start out employing around 130 women. This co-operative will be harvesting fair trade coconut oil and providing much needed dignified jobs to disadvantaged women in a very poor area of Togo.

These are body-care and beauty products that you can be proud to use- ones that treat you, while also specifically helping the poor and marginalized in Togo, and doing that in a way that is sustainable and empowers and improves both local communities and the natural environment. It’s hard not to be impressed with what they do!

Follow these stories on Facebook:
Alaffia has lots of exciting projects going on and we are going to be telling these stories throughout March on Facebook so please like us on Facebook so that you can follow the stories, and benefit from some exclusive Alaffia offers and give-aways! What’s not to ‘like’?!

We’ll be talking about Alaffia’s co-operatives, a new secondary school that Alaffia has just built in the town of Kouloumi, a women’s health project relating to female circumcision, a pre-natal care project, a bicycle and desk distribution scheme, and a plan to plant 8000 trees this year in Togo. And all because people like you choose to buy and use their great products. There is so much to tell, and a huge amount of impact and positive change that is possible, because of dignified, sustainable jobs for those who need them most.

What can you do to help projects like these? It’s not a tough assignment! Treat yourself to some Alaffia products, and consider switching your regular body lotion or soap to Alaffia to do some good to others while treating your skin at the same time.

Scarves for Spring!

A bright and cheery, or warm and snuggly, scarf is great for changeable, sometimes blustery, spring weather. We have lots of choices to help you accessorize and add a splash of color, from jewel colored sari scarves, to cheerful stoles, light weight loose weave scarves, and a spring-time fresh lime-colored scarf.
