Thistle Farms is an extraordinary social enterprise run by women who have survived lives of prostitution, trafficking, addiction and life on the streets. To sustain their recovery programs, the women at Thistle Farms create hand-made natural bath and body products. Purchases of these products directly benefit the women by whom they were made. Through its Shared Trade initiative, Thistle Farms is now also selling products handmade by women survivors worldwide. If you’d like to save a life while shopping for the holidays, visit the online stores for Thistle Farms and Shared Trade. The sites are humble, but the products are beautiful.
