Being a conscious or mindful consumer is something a lot of us are striving for these days. Shopping locally, buying organic, recycling, re-using etc etc
At Gypsy Love we are very focused on being mindful consumers. One of the reasons we are committed to sharing our beautiful malas with you all is not only are these sacred pieces incredibly beautiful and designed to bring a calmer mind, body and spirit to all who wear them but they are also carefully produced in a mindful and conscious manner.
They are hand made with love by the team at Aum Rudraksha Designs in Bali. They are sustainably harvested, in plantations throughout South East Asia with 15% of profits distributed between the staff and farmers of the rudraksha trees.
They are fairly traded, the team at Aum Rudraksha Designs all receives fair trade wages and a share in worldwide profits.
10% of profits are also donated to local Balinese charities such as Bali Street Kids – www.balistreetkids.org and Bumi Sehat a birthing and wellness centre for mothers, children and their families. The centre is run by Robin Lim who was the 2011 CNN Hero of the Year – www.bumisehatbali.org as well as several other local charities.
We truly hope when you wear your mala you feel the love and know that you are sharing that love around the world with everyone involved in bringing these beautiful pieces to you.
