Marigold Collective is dedicated to the social and economic empowerment of women. Marigold partners with women artisan and women-focused Fair Trade Artisan Cooperatives in developing countries and in Canada to provide market access for their high quality products. Marigold sells ethically sourced, fair trade goods that are handcrafted by artisans who have been paid a fair wage, are working under safe work conditions and treated with respect and dignity. Fair Trade protects the environment by reinforcing practices that minimize environmental impact while supporting community development through workplace structures where artisans invest in better housing, healthcare and education for their communities. Fair Trade empowers producers and creates sustainability and positive change.
