Wednesday Wag Out!

My mom is always surfing the web in search of cool stuff. She like things that are environmentally friendly, recycled, and/or a little quirky. She found some really neat stuff today, but she didn't find anything for me.

Bamboo To Go Utensils - $21.00
a low-impact solution for life on-the-go. This utensil set of sustainable bamboo offers a low-impact solution for life on-the-go. If you get a lot of take-out, you're probably using a lot of disposable utensils. Why not have this set handy? You'll not only be making a positive choice, but we bet you'll enjoy your meal a little more, too, with these nicely carved, elegant utensils. The 100% cotton case is hand-woven by craftswomen living in refugee camps on the Thai-Burma border - sales provide income to the women and their families. Lightweight and neat, it's also great to bring hiking and traveling. Buy this set and other great items at

WHAT IS FAIR TRADE?Fair Trade is a growing, international movement which ensures that producers in poor countries get a fair deal. This means a fair price for their goods (one that covers the cost of production and guarantees a living income), long-term contracts which provide real security; and for many, support to gain the knowledge and skills that they need to develop their businesses and increase sales. The empowerment from fair trade lifts families from poverty through trade, not aid, keeping food on the table, children in school and families on their land.
