The ”Fund Your Sweater, and Wear it Too” Campaign does exactly what it says, it gives consumers a way to do good while getting a deal. The “Hoop Funds” Deals combines sustainable andfair trade products with a personal investment in the people producing them.

Thanks to a partnership with Indigenous Designs, a $25 gift on hoopfund.com gets you a $35 credit towards any Indigenous products and a $10 micro-loan towards their women weavers, a vocational training project that enables women in Peru to learn new skills and earn a higher income.
