Fair Trade Friday - Rest and Relaxation

I was up pretty late last night.  With tornado warnings hovering over our area, and tons of lightning and thunder to go along with them, I didn't get to bed until about midnight.  It was pointless to go to bed anyways, since I was too worried about what I would do with the girls if there was a crazy tornado... our house doesn't exactly have a basement, and our bathroom has a giant window in it!  Anyways, all that being said, I'm a little tired today.  On days like today, all I want to do is stay in my jammies and watch back to back episodes of my shows on Netflix.  So, in the spirit of a day of doing almost nothing, here's some Fair Trade products I'm wishing I had.

Punjammies Havila Jammie Pants
These are the prettiest jammie pants I've seen!  I also love the company, Punjammies.  All their products are made by women that were rescued from a life of forced prostitution in India.  Instead of these women being treated as nothing more than a commodity, they are taught a skill and treated with respect in an after-care facility that offers medical care, emotional safety, education, and community.  And the pants are so pretty too!  They also offer shirts and capri length pants especially for spring and summer.

Stop Traffick Fashion 'I am Free' Tee
In the same vein, this Tee Shirt would be great for a laid back day at home, plus the navy color would match the teal pants perfectly (see this post for why...).  The story behind the company would match up pretty well too!  Stop Traffick Fashion employs women in India that either have been rescued or are at risk of being involved in the sex trade, while paying them a fair wage from the income of their products' sales.  In addition, a portion of the company's sales revenue is donated to partner organizations that rescue victims and provide rehabilitation and training.  Plus, as an added bonus to you, all their tees are currently on sale for $18.99!

Indego Africa Nicole Headwrap Turban
Along with the nice comfy clothes, I'd definitely use one of these headwraps to keep my hair back on a lazy day!  This particular wrap was co-designed with Nicole Miller, and hand woven by the Rwandan artisans that make the products available on the Indego Africa website.  There are tons of great products on the site, I'm also drooling over these shoelaces, and this shirt.

Lake Champlain Hot Chocolate

Okay, so I'm one of those weird people that will drink hot chocolate at almost any time of day, no matter the season.  It could be 80 degrees outside, but as long as I'm in air conditioning, you better believe I'll be enjoying a cup of cocoa!  Add in bonus points for this blend being organic and fair trade certified, and it's definitely at the top of my wishlist. (Plus it's currently on sale.... it just keeps getting better!)

What items must you have for a day of relaxation?
