The ultimate Valentine's gift is different for different people. But certain options make much more sense than others. Nothing shows more class and forethought than racy red scarves with a certified fair trade logo.
Thinking of others is part of the mystique of Valentine's Day. Ever since we first exchanged Valentine's cards in elementary school the idea of sharing has been with us for this holiday.
Now, as adults, we have the opportunity to take the idea much farther. Not only can we share a beautiful, loving statement with someone close to us, we can also use the opportunity to support a community of artisans that produces fine handmade scarves.
Red scarves show our loved one that our passion is there. The fair trade logo shows them something else– that we care about our planet. You can also buy scarves, beanies, and gloves for your dear ones.
Our gift to our loved one becomes all the more special when we are striking a note of love in harmony with a note of caring for our planet.
In order for a producer to meet the requirements of the Fair Trade Federation, the producers must be compensated fairly and be given appropriate power to negotiate. Sustainability is the ultimate goal.
So education for children, health, free time, and family time are valued. Therefore, the fair trade scarves represent much more than a quick purchase for Valentine's Day.
Whether you choose red scarves, pink or even black scarves, you have many ways to explain your love for someone if you have considered a bigger picture.
Moreover, the beautiful handmade red scarves or black scarves are of heirloom quality. These gorgeous pieces are as many pieces of art as apparel.
