How It Works

TOGETHER WE ARE IMPROVING LIVES AROUND THE WORLD!

When you shop with us, your purchase provides:

  • fair trade employment to economically disadvantaged artisans (mostly women) in developing countries
  • funds to improvement projects in the artisan communities focused on clean water, health care and education,
  • and funds to U.S.-based charities of your choice at checkout. 
Shopping for a Change (SFAC) is an extended global marketplace for fair trade products
by artisans, artisan co-ops, and companies that employ these artisans, predominantly women,
from economically disadvantaged areas throughout the world.
The artisans are paid up front for their work according to terms they set.
Half of SFAC’s net proceeds fund Community Improvement Projects abroad in our artisans' communities,
focused on clean water, health care and education.
The other half is directed to various U.S.-based nonprofit organizations chosen by the consumer at checkout.
