The recently launched WorldofGood.com by eBay is your new online one-stop-shop for ethically-sourced and eco-chic products by the thousands. Fifteen categories of goodies include everthing from accessories to animal-friendly beauty products, organic threads, home decor items fashioned from recycled materials, and even fair-trade coffee & chocolate (like Divine Chocolate, which is correctly named). And peace of mind is part of the bargain: not only do Trust Providers screen each product for accuracy, but the new Goodprint system lets you shop according to the issues that matter most to you, whether it's ethical labor practices, supporting sustainability, or looking out for our four-legged friends.
"We created the WorldofGood.com marketplace to enable shoppers to purchase socially responsible products with confidence," says Robert Chatwani, general manager of WorldofGood.com by eBay. "Regardless of the social causes most important to consumers, they can easily shop for items according to a variety of different attributes, allowing them to customize their shopping impact."
As we're completely obsessed with Divine Chocolate, we were thrilled to find out our luscious indulgence supports cocoa farmers like Cecilia Appianim of Ghana. She is a member of the Kuapa Kokoo cocoa farmer's co-operative, in the village of Asentem in Central Ghana, which created Divine Chocolate as a way to provide local growers with an annual Fair Trade income. Typically, the profits go right back into the local community - building local schools, wells for clean drinking water, and even providing mobile medical clinics for farmers in remote growing regions.
Check it & shop for the greater good at WorldofGood.com.
