In celebration of Earth Day and the upcoming Fair Trade Month, Fable Naturals Skincare and Fair Trade Vancouver have teamed up to host a free education night raising awareness of women’s argan oil co-operatives in Morocco on April 13 at The Hive (128 W. Hastings St).
Readers of Modern Mix Vancouver may have already heard of Fable Natural’s moroccan Argan Oil through a recent article we wrote about this Vancouver brand’s latest addition to their Fair Trade skincare collection. Fair trade, female only cooperatives mean that the women working are paid a fair wage, allowing them to support their families.
At the event, guests will have the opportunity to meet Gwen Richards, the founder of Fable Naturals, learn about the brand’s involvement with the Fair Trade co-operatives and the benefits of incorporating natural oils in their skincare routine. In addition, event attendees will also be guided through a DIY fair-trade coffee scrub workshop, with grinds provided by Vancouver’s “Beyond Fair Trade” Doi Chaang coffee.
