Giveaway: Meet the Joobles! CONTEST CLOSED

Joobles are precious playmates from Peru where artisans have hand crafted a menagerie of animals under fair trade conditions, providing work and hope to hundreds of rural and urban Peruvians. That’s why their tagline is Responsible, Sustainable, Adorable™. Each incredibly soft animal is made with eco-friendly dyes and organic cotton grown in Peru. For parents hunting for eco-friendly toys, all of the Joobles are made with cotton grown without the use of pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, fertilizers, or other chemicals. Eliminating these chemicals is not only better for baby, but also for workers and for the environment.

There are 9 Joobles filled with personality and promise: Bella the Bunny, Buzzy Bug, Calley the Cat, Fair Bear, Icy the Penguin, Jiffy the Giraffe, Mel the Monkey, Mooey Cow, and Pip the Dog. Each Jooble retails for just $29 each!

What a great infant holiday gift!

  3. Fair trade is important because it empowers developing country producers and promotes sustainability.

  4. It’s hard to believe fair trade clothing has lagged in the US. Of course UK surpasses us. Fair trade needs to be made worldwide. Why can’t more people be pro-higher wages? All companies should realize that it makes for a better working environment.

  18. doozercries says:

    fair trade is good because it allows works to live a comfortable life. it gives them a chance to reach above the poverty level and provide for themselves and their family.

  19. I did visit the Fair Indigo website and looked around, although I didn’t need to read about Fair Trade. I’m a big supporter of buying fairly traded items. I cringe when I think about wearing or using something that someone — perhaps a child — created under poor working conditions for a salary that barely keeps body and soul together. Plus, fairly traded products, such as chocolate and coffee, often have ecologically sound practices behind them. Don’t mean to rant; this is a subject I care a lot about.

    Fair trade for fair wage

  46. Purplemommi says:

    Fair trade is important because you are paying workers what they deserve for their labor. That is why it is called “fair” trade, because it is just that.

  47. It is so very important that every worker gets paid fairly

  48. Diaper Cakes Becca says:

    ON a personal note….fair trade is important because what goes around comes around. If you don’t pay enough for your products… WILL come back to haunt you. Fair work deserves fair pay. If items sell for a certain amount, the workers should be making a fair percentage of the asking price.

    I am very glad to see this issue getting some attention. This is a very important cause…kudos to this site for spotlighting it!!

    (And aren’t those animals adorable, worth every penny of their asking price!)

  49. People get paid fairly for their hard work!

  52. Christina says:

    Christina – – Fair Trade is important because it is dedicated to giving women fair wages, not minimum wage (which doesn’t even always happen in America!). I try to attend all the Fair Trade Fairs that crop up around the Xmas holidays in my city, and hope that others will also.

  53. Fair Trade raises the standards of living for these families and offers a comprehensive development of their communities. It offers true change, and not charity.

  54. justicecw says:

    Fair trade is so important because if you are willing to work hard then you should be making a liveable wage…it is the right thing to do!

  58. artmarcia says:

    No one should ever have to work in a sweat shop.

  59. rosannepm says:

    “Fair trade is a rapidly growing movement dedicated to paying workers fair wages rather than minimum ones”. Like this concept as people are paid on merit what they are worth and what they work for rather than a standard rate for everyone. Encourages a strong work ethic something we often lack with minimum wage employees.

  60. Luck Happens says:
