Hi friends! It’s time for another Feature Friday. This month we’re talking about SHE Gifts of Life LLC
Have you heard of it? If not, you’ve been missing out!
SHE Gifts of Life is the first fair trade retail store in Clarksville. The concept came about when Syvella Robinson was working for a fair trade organization in Nashville. They did a lot of merchandising around Clarksville and Syvella realized that people here wanted something similar. She took a risk and opened her own fair trade store.
For those that don’t know, fair trade ensures that people in developing countries get a fair and living wage to help reduce poverty and provide ethical treatment of the workers. Another great thing about fair trade is most of the products are upcycled, reused, or repurposed. Nothing goes to waste. At SHE, seventy eight percent of their products are made from female artisans. They are actively advocating for women’s rights all around the world.
Syvella and SHE Gifts of Life are doing great things, not only for our community, but for the world. Syvella says “We are collectively trying to create the world that we want to see. Our job here is to help others and put people and the planet first.”
