Artisan Impact

The reason Do Good Shop exists is to empower people escaping oppression and exploitation to break the chain of injustice.  

The reason we sell fair trade food items because farming, food, coffee, chocolate, etc is one of the places where much injustice takes place!

We're not saying you need to change every food purchase you make.  But you know what happens when each one of us make one small change?  Our small, one step at a time choices, when added together with others small step forward choices creates a tidal wave of justice, rolling down!  Read more about your impact on our small farmer cooperatives here.

Organic Irish Breakfast Tea

Regular price $ 8.00 Free shipping
/

Description

  • Equal Exchange Fairy Traded
  • Small Farmers 
  • Big Change
  • USDA Organic
  • Kosher
  • Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth
  • organic black tea leaves

 

A breakfast tea specially blended to deliver the fullest body and most malt. With just a touch of sweetness, it's perfect straight up but strong enough to handle milk and sugar.

Brewing Instructions:

  • Bring water to boil.
  • 212ºF 100ºC
  • Steep 3-5 min. 

    Who made this?

    Most teas—even Fair Trade—come from plantations where workers have little say, and are often trapped in a system of dependency. Together, we are building a different tea model, one that gives small farmers greater access to the market, affording them more economic power, better lives and healthier communities.

    This blend includes tea from The Small Farmer Tea Project (SFTP) in Kerala, India - an organic, Fair Trade tea garden managed by Tea Promoters of India (TPI). TPI is a pioneer in environmental and social reform in the tea industry. The Small Farmer Tea Project is bringing economic growth and control to its members who are predominantly marginalized small producers from tribal groups that have suffered from social and economic injustice for generations.

      Who made this?


      Working with more than 100 individual carvers in Machakos, Kenya, Jedando Modern Handicrafts markets African handicrafts primarily made of wood and bone worldwide. Carving is a tradition in Kenya with the children learning the craft from their parents. Carved by hand using only rudimentary hand tools, olive wood bowls, salad serving sets, and animal-shaped napkin rings take shape from pieces of olive wood, mahogany, and mpingo, or "African Ebony."
      An integral part of the organization's function is to educate the craftspeople on the need for reforestation to enable the products to be available for years to come and offer a sustainable income for generations. While wood carving provides the major income for many in the Machakos area, other craftspeople earn a living by further enhancing the products including painting the napkin rings and carving discarded animal bone for the handles of salad serving sets. Often the bone is "batiked" by placing wax on the white bone and dipping the bone a dark brown/black dye, resulting in patterns African mud cloth designs.

      Most of Ganesh Himal’s knit items are knit by women in their homes while their children are in school. Organized into small neighborhood groups, one woman is elected as a team leader. The team leader picks up the pre dyed wool and delivers the wool and orders weekly. She then will pick up the finished product and deliver them to the main office. Once at the main office they do the finishing, lining and final quality control. For Nepali women it is vital to be able to work in their homes while caring for their children and at the same time gain a fair income. This income gives them a larger voice in their homes and allows many to keep their children in school.

      Story Behind the Art: 

      The bone is "batiked" which is an age old art process used in Africa.  The patterns are applied by placing wax on the white bone and dipping the bone into a dark brown/black dye, resulting in the beautiful African mud cloth designs.

      Who made this?

      Working with more than 100 individual carvers in Machakos, Kenya, Jedando Modern Handicrafts markets African handicrafts primarily made of wood and bone worldwide. Carving is a tradition in Kenya with the children learning the craft from their parents. Carved by hand using only rudimentary hand tools, olive wood bowls, salad serving sets, and animal-shaped napkin rings take shape from pieces of olive wood, mahogany, and mpingo, or "African Ebony."
      An integral part of the organization's function is to educate the craftspeople on the need for reforestation to enable the products to be available for years to come and offer a sustainable income for generations. While wood carving provides the major income for many in the Machakos area, other craftspeople earn a living by further enhancing the products including painting the napkin rings and carving discarded animal bone for the handles of salad serving sets. Often the bone is "batiked" by placing wax on the white bone and dipping the bone a dark brown/black dye, resulting in patterns African mud cloth designs.

      Who made this?

      Our Soapstone is carved by the artists of SMOLArt a group of artists who live in the rural village of Tabaka, Kenya, the heart of soapstone crafts. The name, a shortened version of Small, Medium, and Large Artists, refers to the size of the soapstone products the artisans make, not their stature. Established in 1990, SMOLArt is a member of the WFTO, and as such assures that the artisans are paid a fair price for their work. In addition, the organization support community development by contributing to projects that improve living conditions, education, and health of their members and the village at large.

      Soapstone is mined from great pits in the area surrounding Kiisi, Kenya. The mined soapstone is then delivered to carvers who carve sculptures from the natural stone for the wholesale market, the color of which ranges from cream, to pink, to brown, to yellow, to black, to a marbling of all of them. Once carved, the craftspeople smooth rough edges of the soapstone with sandpaper dipped in water and polish the piece to a high gloss or paint African motifs in brilliant colors with etched accents.


      All of the soapstone products we sell are completely handmade. The tools consist of household items from screwdrivers, hand drills, to switchblades. "Pangas," sword-like tools usually used for cutting down vegetation, are used to cleave the stone in the mines.
