5 Beautiful Fair-Trade Winter Scarves Under $50
So often winter becomes a burden, but a few beautiful accessories can brighten up even the dreariest of days. With so many eco-friendly scarves available through online fair-trade stores, you don’t even have to leave the comfy couch to shop for the perfect winter scarf.
You will probably end up spending slightly more for a fair-trade scarf, but the price is easily justified by the superior quality and mere fact that you’re supporting ethical fashion and providing a better life for artisans around the world. A handmade scarf can easily last for many years, saving you money down the road. By purchasing a fair-trade winter scarf, you’re also almost guaranteed to never meet anyone else wearing the same scarf.
