Protect your table or counter top with festive coasters no eco-friendly party should be without! Stylish and socially aware, this set of four is made with 100% recycled materials collected and re-purposed in Haiti.
In the spirit of traditional Haitian rara bands -- who create instruments from coffee cans and other discarded items to play in street festivals -- our coasters are handmade by artisans in Haiti out of recycled materials as part of the RARA project. The RARA Project helps underprivileged Haitian women generate income to provide for their families, and trains them in skills such as sewing and weaving, all while promoting environmental responsibility.
Each purchase provides an extra donation to GROW -- Girls' Right to Opportunity Worldwide. Through this program girls in developing countries are provided the opportunity to attend secondary school, in turn providing them with a economically better, healthier future.
