Heart of the Sky Fair Trade

The Eau Claire Global Market is excited to introduce you to Melinda Van Slyke of Spring Green, Wisconsin and her organization, Heart of the Sky Fair Trade: Fair Trade Textiles and Jewelry From Guatemala and Fair Trade Baskets From Ghana.

Melinda has a deep passion for social justice and human rights.  Melinda began importing fair trade textiles and bead work from Guatemala as a way to improve the lives of people that she met there while volunteering as a human rights observer in a refugee community.  Over the years she began selling fair trade baskets from Ghana. She makes it a point to source merchandise from family workshops, family run businesses, and women led cooperatives.
