Pebble have been working in partnership with the USAID's CREL project and Winrock International to connect poor and resource-dependent people with the private sector. By teaching women in these very remote areas to knit, so that they no longer need to go to the forests and deplete the natural resources for their livelihoods. Its all about working together to mitigate the effects of climate change and enable climate resilience.
The ethical gifts by the Australian Social Enterprises here tackle some big issues. Your purchase helps them work with charities who are experts in the field and they make a difference in the space of empowering and rescuing women, improving human health, reusing items that would have otherwise gone into landfill, providing work and helping people break out of the cycle of poverty.
