About Acacia Creations~Not Your Average Company
Acacia Creations debuted in the U.S. in 2007. They operate according to fair trade principles and return a percentage of each sale to their employees in Kenya. That means the more they sell, the more the workers and their families benefit! Also, because their items are made from recycled and reclaimed materials, the more they sell, the more is kept from littering and going to garbage heaps.
A Brighter Future for Their Artisans
Their workshop is located in Nairobi, Kenya where they've been making fun, ethical, recycled paper jewelry since October 2007. They currently have 21 men and women working in Nairobi to make one-of-a-kind pieces. In keeping with fair trade practices, each of their employees is paid a monthly salary, in addition to receiving a percentage of each sale.
In all their workers earn a wage 5 times higher than the national average in Kenya!!
Acacia Creations also covers most medical costs for their employees and their families and provides lunch daily at the Nairobi studio.
