We get the question all the time... what do you mean by Ethical is Beautiful?
Our tagline summarized several aspects of the Peace + Love + Bling business model.
1. Peace + Love + Bling believes in creative, dignified employment. Our brand is ethically produced meaning we follow the Principles of Fair Trade including providing safe working conditions, a better than living wage, opportunities for development and never using child labor. Women working with Peace + Love + Bling have overcome dire circumstances from human trafficking, to substance and domestic abuse to create a better life for themselves and their children.
2. We also give back in our local community by working with local organizations to provide employment and enrichment opportunities, donations, and even fundraising opportunities. (By the way, if you're interested in learning more about our flexible FUNdraising program, Bling for Wings, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get you some info!)
3. We use natural stones and real pearls in our designs because you deserve the best. By working directly with global artisans and even producing certain designs in our Columbus, OH store front and studio, we are able to keep our supply chain small, our quality high, and our prices affordable.
So, #EthicalisBeautiful encompasses both the physical beauty of the items we produce with our global partners and the beauty and prosperity we hope to spread around the world through our designs and our company.You can learn more about Our Story here.
