Women Owned and Operated Marketplace Connects Makers Across Globe
Madison, WI— Jan. 1, 2023 — World Community Exchange, a women-owned and women-operated online marketplace, announced immediate availability of hand-crafted products via their new fair-trade eCommerce site, www.WorldCommunityExchange.com. This small startup of passionate entrepreneurs is taking on giant competitors to prove that the makers market can be ethical, profitable, and fair.
“Our vision is a world without economic disparity or oppression based on sex, gender, or sexual identity” reads the World Community Exchange mission statement. Founders Rosie Rey and Lori Hayes are committed to bringing their vision about, not by establishing a charity to “help” but by providing the opportunity for women artisans to showcase their own work and to learn best practices for pricing, entrepreneurship, and representation.
Dignified Exchange, Fair Enterprise
As families review their credit card statements to assess their 2022 holiday spending, they may find the social consciousness of their purchases ultimately affects the bottom line, too. Did purchases made through online giants support oppressive employers who exploit women and/or children? Did makers of festive holiday gifts and decorations use sustainable sourcing? World Community Exchange challenges shoppers to step up their gift giving game.
“If you’re going to Wal-Mart, Target, or let’s say even Macy’s, you’re pretty much guaranteeing that you are not buying fair trade. If you’re shopping off of Amazon, you’re definitely supporting oppressive business practices. Especially Etsy charges its artisans a fee” said Veronica Girard, one of the site’s product reviewers “It just feels better to give a gift if you know you’re helping, not harming, the person who made it.”
