Fair Trade Swap: Autumn Edition!


I know, I know, it’s only August. But where I live the temps have been nice and cool lately, and I can’t help but start getting excited for Fall! Will it help my cliché status a little bit if I tell you I actually don’t like Pumpkin Spice Lattes that much? I’m more of a hazelnut cappuccino kind of girl. But as for changing leaves, bonfires, and cuddly sweatshirts … bring it on!

One of my favorite ways to shop is to take the items I love and can find easily accessible in the mall and search out sustainable, ethical fair trade alternatives. So before you start stocking up on all of your Autumn “essentials,” care to take a look at some fun, ethical, “Octobery” finds with me? Below are a few of my fave Fall items!
