My top picks from the Oxfam Spring Catalogue
The new Spring catalogue from Oxfam is out today!
I love a social enterprise business. There are so many good ones around these days and Oxfam is one of the best. They are the leading ethical retailer in Australia and have been making a difference for over fifty years.
Operating for community instead of profit, Oxfam source gorgeous products from around the world to help communities rise out of poverty by empowering them to improve their lives.
Oxfam products are not the cheapest out there, but the difference is the workers in these poor countries are paid a fair price for their work and craft. In this age of mass-produced, poor quality items from discount stores, Oxfam make a refreshing change in conscious consumerism.
It’s was a no-brainer for me to join them as an affiliate partner several years ago. I love their ethics and I love their unique, handmade products. Today I have teamed up with them to not only bring you some of the things I love from the Spring catalogue but to also give you the chance to win a $50 gift voucher as well.
It was really hard to limit myself to show just a few things as there are so many lovely products. If you haven’t had a look at Oxfam for a while, you will be pleasantly surprised at how on-trend they are these days with colours and styles.
There are so many great gift ideas for Christmas, so take advantage of the FREE shipping for today only on purchases over $50. I am particularly in love with all of the products made from recycled saris from notebooks and throws to side tables and Christmas decorations. A beautiful upcycled product with a story and a history is just so fascinating to me.
Anyway, have a look at my top picks and tell me what you think. Don’t forget to enter to win the gift voucher too!
