Redemption Market: “Shop for Freedom”

We all love shopping, right?  Whether you like shopping for clothes, accessories, home décor, shoes, gifts…You probably enjoy shopping for something, whether it’s in person or online.  What if every purchase you made served a purpose other than being simply aesthetically pleasing, such as working towards making the world a better place?  What if you could shop for freedom?

Fair-trade markets allow you to do just that.  Redemption Market is a fair trade boutique that offers unique goods created by artisans around the world who have suffered in unfortunate situations, such as exploitation and human trafficking.  Redemption Market aids in providing these individuals with healthy avenues on which to expend their energies and allowing them to receive fair compensation for the items they create.

How does Redemption Market achieve this?

It seeks to instill joy, hope, and purpose into artisans’ lives and give people opportunities they wouldn’t have otherwise had due to:

  • poor, rural living conditions
  • sex trafficking
  • modern-day slavery
  • dirty water

The boutique began by working with a rehabilitation program in Cambodia that rescues women off the street and now partners with over a dozen similar organizations!

Hand in Hand- Redepmtion MarketYou get pretty, natural, sustainable items that no one else has, and the money you spend on them is well-spent in more ways than one.  When you buy from Redemption Market, you escape the middle-men, which makes prices more affordable for you, and artisans receive ethical and fair wages.  Plus, when you purchase certain items, money is donated
to those less fortunate.  For example, when you buy candles, lotion, or soap associated with the Hand in Hand organization, a bar of soap and month of clean water is given to children in Haiti.  Check out this coastal-themed hand lotion, which supports the cause.  Visit this page to learn more about the programs Redemption Market benefits and the products it offers.
