Take the Handmade Pledge

I Took The Handmade Pledge! BuyHandmade.org

Take the Handmade Pledge this holiday season. I just did, and this will be going on about five years we’ll be giving only handmade gifts for Christmas.

Here’s a blurb from the Buy Handmade website:

Buying handmade is better for people, better for the environment, and better for giving truly special and well-crafted gifts. The ascendancy of chain store culture and global manufacturing has left us all dressing, furnishing, and decorating alike. The connection between producer and consumer has been lost. Buying handmade helps them reconnect.

We encourage all consumers to be aware of the social and environmental implications of their purchases.
