Peaceful River Creations was born out of a love of people’s “creations”! We love handmade products and we love supporting other small businesses. Our store contains items from local artists and crafters, handmade products from around the world that we get through the Fair Trade Organization, and small business-made products from around the USA, especially the Midwest.
Why support Fair Trade? Many shoppers want to know where their food and clothing are coming from. Businesses want to do good in the world. Fair Trade is sustainable trade. The Fairtrade Standards are some of the most robust among voluntary sustainability standards and include strong economic, social, and environmental criteria.
Fair Trade helps distribute products, making sure that the people in the villages that make the products are paid a fair wage and paid in a timely manner. This helps these people (usually many women) to support themselves and their families, get healthcare and an education, and stay out of the sex trafficking arena for an income.
We believe in helping our friends and clients to live their best life. We have products for the Body, Mind, and Spirit. Stones, crystals, sage, salt lamps, and other items that aid in meditation and natural healing are also available. We believe that by working with nature and our body, we can keep ourselves healthy and strong. We also host classes to teach different modalities of health, mental wellness, and healing.
We also believe in being environmentally friendly. By having handmade products in the store, there is a reduced amount of packaging. We use only paper bags and we sell many reusable and recyclable items so that we can reduce our impact on our world.
Shopping is fun, but shopping for a cause is so much better. Your purchases support our families and others from around our area, our country, and our world.
Shop Small, Shop Local, Shop Smart!
