Makers + Goods
An e-commerce site with a mission of giving gifts that give back, Makers + Goods designs and curates unique and impactful gifts that leave layers of impact. Next to each item is a thoughtful description on the “maker” and “impact.” Each maker gives back differently, from helping victims of sex trafficking, to providing two weeks of utilities to the women who make a particular blanket. Through the purchase of the You Are Loved gift box, a tree is planted, a percentage of sales are donated to Every Mother Counts, female artisans in Northern India are employed, all supporting socially conscious "makers" who are small business owners and entrepreneurs.
