Human Trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery, and is something that can be found in every corner of the world. This horrendous industry is around us whether we want to admit it or not. Most traffickers use psychological means such as, tricking, defrauding, manipulating or threatening victims into providing commercial sex or exploitative labor. I encourage you to learn more. Knowledge is power, and the more we know, the more we can help make an impact! (www.polarisproject.org)
This is also where The Tote Project comes in. Two best friends created this company with the intent to empower survivors of human trafficking around the world. They spread awareness through speaking engagements, social media, press and online resources. They work closely with their fair trade partners ensure the supply chain is free of human trafficking and child labor. They also donate to empower survivors and those at risk. The Tote Project donates a portion of every sale to Two Wings, a non-profit to support survivors of human trafficking in the United States. (www.thetoteproject.com)
We are proud to offer pouches (and tote bags in the near future) by The Tote Project! These pouches are made in a fair trade factory by women escaping West Bengal’s sex trade. These are beautifully designed and made with eco-friendly and sustainable materials - 100% organic cotton, recycled sari fabric, and printed with water-based phthalate-free inks. We here at Mountain Hollow Crystals also pledge to donate $1 for every pouch and tote bag sold to Two Wings! (www.withtwowings.org)Together we can help.
