)-- Global Girlfriend’s and Gecko Traders’ line of handmade and eco-friendly clothing and accessories can be seen at the New York International Gift Fair, August 15 - 19, 2009.
Started in 2003, Global Girlfriend helps women worldwide gain economic security while providing unique products and a simple way to help women in need.
The Global Girlfriend’s fair-trade wholesale line offers a line of trend-setting, women-made, fair-trade products including stylish organic cotton apparel, handbags and jewelry with one purpose: helping women in need help themselves. “We believe passionately that economic opportunity for women holds the promise for real change in the world; because when women have an income, they reinvest in themselves and in their children's health, education and nutrition, building stronger families and communities over time,” said Stacey Edgar, Global Girlfriend president.
All Global Girlfriend items come tagged with a story tag about the women who made the item. Global Girlfriend products are available at boutiques and premier retailers nationwide including Whole Foods Market, Sundance, Barnes & Noble, other retail outlets, and through the GreaterGood Network of websites.
The latest addition to the GreaterGood Network, Gecko Traders, features a line of vibrant accessories made from recycled rice bags by Cambodian women.
