Global Girlfriend was created by Stacey Edgar in 2003 to help women worldwide gain economic security while providing your store with unique products and a simple way to help women and communities in need. Today, we have more than 1,000 points of distribution, ranging from natural food stores, to boutiques, to college bookstores. Our store-within-a-store business model makes it easy for you to offer your customers high quality, ethically-sourced gifts from 34 countries around the world. We believe in the power of commerce to alleviate poverty, and your partnership is the cornerstone to achieving that mission. Won't you join us?
We believe passionately that economic opportunity for women holds the promise for real change in the world, because when women have an income, they reinvest in themselves and in their children's health, education, and nutrition, building stronger families and communities over time. We support our women artisan partners, plus a few good men, in producing high-quality handcrafted goods while earning fair wages. Global Girlfriend believes in harnessing commerce to provide meaningful markets for women and low-income artisans as a development strategy to foster prosperity and reduce poverty.
Our goal at Global Girlfriend is to make it easy for you to offer your customers an ethical option while also providing you with the highest quality fair trade handicrafts that generate high revenues per square foot. We can't achieve our mission to alleviate poverty without your support — to that end we work with you to continually improve our service, our programs, our products, and our dedication to you. Thank you for helping us build markets for the greater good.
