Sponsored Post: Seven Hopes United

I am so proud that a growing number of brides are being more eco-conscious and concerned with contributing to charities while planning their weddings. I think it’s really important to take some of the selfishness of this special occasion and show some love to others.

That’s why I’m so excited about Seven Hopes United‘s new Fair Trade Wedding & Gift Registry.

Seven Hopes United is an amazing online marketplace of fairly-traded crafts, jewelry and housewares from around the globe. All  products sold through them are Fair Trade Certified meaning they are made in fair trade cooperatives that contribute to social development, provide economic stability, and secure the right of marginalized producers and workers – especially in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. Plus a portion of the proceeds from each product sold is invested back into artisan communities. Sounds pretty great, huh?

And now they have launched a very special gift registry option that redefines “gifts that give back.”

When you create a registry through Seven Hopes United you make it possible for your friends to give a very special gift that works in two ways…

1. You are giving the gift of hope and a future to people who need it most, in honor of someone you love.

2. By making giving fun, innovative and convenient, your friend will feel good about the help their gift is providing.”

And signing up for a Seven Hopes United Fair Trade Wedding Registry is easy and fun. I signed up for one for us that you can check out here.
