Because you can be a conscious consumer and still love design. But then, shopping ethically is hard. So finally one-stop hat makes it easy. Here’s the online destination for exceptionally designed, ethically home goods, furniture & apparel.
Learn all you need to know about this all-fair trade online curated shop on the interview between Madeleine Wisecup and Cayley Pater, Founder of Made Trade. Because purchasing can have a positive social and environmental impact.
A few facts you should know about Cayley:
- She speaks 5 languages (Hindi, German, Spanish, Farsi, and English). Her love of languages ultimately led her down the path to founding Made Trade (hear why in today’s 🎙 episode)
- She believes that every product we buy and bring into our lives has an impact on people somewhere in the world. She believes that if people were paid a livable wage for their work, they wouldn’t need financial aid. If materials used in the products we buy were responsibly harvested without exploiting the planet’s resources, we wouldn’t need to undo the damage that’s done as a result of manufacturing.
- She believes in artistry above efficiency. Fair wages above profits. Sustainability above mass production. Quality craftsmanship above mindless consumption. And transparency above everything.
- She lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband, Andy.
So enjoyed, hearing all about the work Cayley’s doing & the journey that led her to found Made Trade. Plus, she shares some really great insight on the ethical fashion industry and how we can all make a difference by becoming more conscious consumers.
“This was such a great conversation and I truly hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Happy listening!” Madeleine Wisecup, the host of The Wise Consumer podcast
