A Fair trade
For most couples, a wedding registry is an exciting opportunity to acquire both necessary and coveted home accessories to help build a new life together. But for a growing number of brides and grooms, the desire to receive gifts is balanced by the need to act responsibly toward society and the environment - which means limiting unnecessary consumption and choosing items that are globally conscious. For them, fair trade registries, an emerging niche in the gift-giving business, are an ideal compromise.
We were so glad to find the Seven Hopes United wedding registry! The gift we really wanted from our family and friends was their support for fair trade & making a difference in lives around the world-not another blender or toaster.— Sara M. and Jordan K., Chicago, Illinois
With Seven Hopes United couples are able to access a wide variety of gifts that are not only stylish, but fair trade and eco-friendly as well. Seven Hopes United's Fair Trade Gift Registry gives "gifts that give back" a whole new meaning.
We registered with them and can absolutely say we were blown away by the quality and service...I would suggest this website to any of my family and friends.— Erica C. and Aaron C., San Diego, California

- You are giving the gift of hope and a future to people who need it most.

For some brides, the whole process of registering for lavish home goodies can seem a tad bit self-indulgent. But thanks to our new friends at Seven Hopes United, we've found the perfect solution for couples who would rather give than receive."— GetMarried.com
A progressive alternative to typical bridal registries, Seven Hopes United brings together eco-conscious brides with artisans from around the world...a portion of the proceeds from every item sold is invested back into artisan communities, helping to further promote the economic freedom and social development made possible by the fair trade movement."— Carolina Bride
For every 10 items purchased from your gift registry we'll make a donation in your honor.
Your gift of mosquito nets will help protect a family against malaria and other deadly insect-borne diseases.
UNICEF reports that Malaria is an endemic in 90% of sub-Saharan Africa and is one of the main causes of mortality for children under the age of 5. Only 22% of children under the age of five years old are sleeping under a mosquito net, and only 5% of those nets are the insecticide treated mosquito nets. With your gift, we can help save lives.
