                                                                                                                                          Have you ever walked by a store and went in to buy and item and when you check to see where it was made it is made outside of the U.S.A.? Then proceed to think how it made, who is making the item, are they being paid fairly, are they being treated right, given health insurance, and have a strong education to help then grow as people should? If you answered yes, then you are like myself, a conscience consumer and the growing trend of conscience consumerism and ever growing need to make sure we know the facts about where we get our every day used items.

I have found one of the most amazing places to shop for "green" clothing, jewelry, and accessories, but they believe in making change for the whole world. Its called Hearts. Hearts is not only fabulous fashion that uses upcycled, sustainable, biodegradable, raw, renewable and SO much more. However, Hearts does't just better the way that products are being made, but Hearts thinks about where, how, and who, about the products they make. but they are doing something about it through their program iHeart Change. "iHeart Change is our way of creating awareness and supporting the 6 causes that drive the heart of Hearts. The 6 world causes we support are: Environmental Sustainability, Quality of Life in a Community, Freedom & Social Justice, Human Rights, Education, and Cultural Awareness."  There is something to be said about fashion that is created for change in our world. Please go and check out everything has to offer and help continue the awareness for great causes.

One of the specific programs iHeart Change supports is Pencils of Promise. Pencils of Promise is a global movement of very passionate individuals who believe that every single child should have the access to a quality education. They create schools, programs, and global communities around world with the common goal of education for all. Please visit education which funds Pencils of Promise where you can find more about iHeart Change for Education.You can find more detailed information about Pencils of Promise here.

No one should be left behind when it comes to learning and gaining knowledge. Thanks to this amazing foundation, they have completed and built 80 new schools. Go check it out for yourself and see how you can get involved.

Have fun shopping and please think about where you buy the items you use.
