WHO MADE IT:
A team in India, comprised of four artisan cooperatives and over 6,000 women in a village outside of Delhi and in the Uttar Pradesh region.
By providing women with health insurance, educational scholarships, and business trainings, Team India supports women’s development both socially and economically.
Team India provides health insurance and educational scholarships for its artisans, directly investing women's rights and social mobility.
They also work hard to help women break into the job market, providing community trainings on business and vocational skills to women of different experience levels.
We commit to long term, reliable trade agreements that allow cooperatives to hire more women and make proactive business decisions. Team India can count on us to place continuous orders at consistent prices, and that trust results in more jobs and more job security for women.
We recognize the difference between living wage and minimum wage, and we pay our artisans more than 2x the minimum wage in Delhi. Uttar Pradesh minimum wage: 445 rupees per day ($6.88 USD/day), compared to Fair Anita wage: 800+ rupees per day ($12.50 USD+). The minimum wage in India is also seen as a livable wage, but most workers in India aren't employed through the formal economy, so they don't even receive minimum wage for their work.
These candles are made from the pods of the Brazil Nut tree, one of the tallest trees in the Amazon Rainforest. Once the Brazil nuts have been harvested from the pod and sold in the local Peruvian market, the artisans transform a "waste" item, the pod, into a fine rain forest gift for you. The pods are filled with a combination of clean-burning paraffin wax, palm oil and fragrance to make these healing candles. Available in a variety of colors and fragrances, these earth-friendly candles make use of the rainforest's renewable resources and create jobs for Peruvian artisans. Price is per candle. Colors may vary slightly.
