"Create in me a green (heart)" tote bag
When you purchase this stylish tote bag, you not only show your support for stewarding God’s creation, but you directly impact the lives of vulnerable women. This eco-friendly tote bag is made from 100 percent organic cotton and stitched together by women in India. Formerly trapped in the sex trade, these women now receive a fair wage for their work as well as new educational opportunities, child care, and basic health care.
However, freeing women from the sex trade and protecting creation have more in common than just this bag! Data collected by the United Nations Environment Programme strongly suggests that human trafficking increases about 20 to 30 percent during natural disasters. As climate change is increasingly linked to more extreme weather patterns, women in poor and developing nations are at higher risk of losing their freedom in the sex trade.
