Who made this product? The mug was made by artisans in Cameroon employed by Prescraft. Potters in the village of Bamessing sculpt each earthenware piece on a wheel, trim it by hand, and glaze and fire the final products in woodburning kilns. These mugs are then shipped to Chicago and were given to Bright Endeavors who employ New Mom's participants in a 13 week workforce development to create them into candles.
Why is it ethical? The mug is crafted by Prescraft who is committed to ecological and economic justice, and runs a reforestation program with local farms, provides opportunities for professional development, and actively works to create jobs in rural villages, minimizing the need for villagers to leave their families and migrate to urban areas to find work. Candle creation from New Mom's caters to first time moms who come from a struggling background. They provide housing, counseling, and job training to set them up for a successful life professionally and personally.
