So what is this fair trade business and why does it matter?

Hello beauties,

Hive Beauty Box prides itself on the fact that most everything is domestically made here in the USA. We also love supporting women in business across the globe. How do we do this? By making sure what we buy is ethically made and fair trade. So what is fair trade? 

Fair Trade noun. - trade in which fair prices are paid to producers in developing countries.

What does fair trade mean to Hive Beauty Box? It means that people should be treated fairly, they should be given the basic resources to live a healthy household and lifestyle. We proudly partner with organizations that regulate and ensure that all of our products on our shelves are created with the highest ethical standards possible. We will never compromise someone's livelihood to save a dollar. So remember sometimes something might cost more but that is because we choose to partner with people who care. People who will be sure that our artisans are taken care of and loved in the way every human being has the right to be. 

One of the non-profits we work with in Guatemala has begun to form small loans for members of our organization, encouraging them to develop projects and businesses that interest their creative minds, to supplement their income. It is the goal to see many more artisan craft shops around the country of Guatemala and hopefully to generate enthusiasm with outside partners as well.

 These are some of the artisans that create our beautiful bags and other goods. We can't wait to go to Gutamala later this year to spend more time with them.
