Beadology Iowa currently offers bead strands from Bead to Feed, a line of beads made in Ghana made from crushed bottles. We just got a new batch in and they are lovely. 50% of proceeds goes to running Mother's House, an orphanage providing food, shelter clothing, and skill building to girls.
Next week, we expect our first shipment of fair trade certified, recycled paper beads from Beads4Life, an organization that provides financial assistance and support to women in Uganda to start their own businesses.
Help us make these efforts successful while utilizing really beautiful materials.
