Made From Recycled Car Parts. If you know us, you know we get pretty darn excited about products that are made from other products. This LOVE bar, along with its cousin PEACE, are made from salvaged aluminum car parts in Nicaragua. When you catch a glimpse of these hearty bars on your desk at work, or a shelf at home, you'll be reminded that these were made with love... of people and planet.

SOURCE Handmade in Isla Solentiname, Nicaragua. CERTIFICATIONS Fair Trade — In a nutshell, fair trade is about ethical business practices. Women of the Cloud Forest are proud members of the Fair Trade Federation, a North American based membership organization made up of organizations like ourselves who offer opportunity to artisans and farmers in developing countries. To quote the Fair Trade Federation, fair trade means “good wages, safe working conditions, environmental responsibility, and more.” It means our partners are empowered to build strong businesses for their families today — and for generations to come.
ABOUT THE COMPANY Women of the Cloud Forest has been working in fair trade since 2001. They have direct, long-term relationships with small family workshops and cooperatives in Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Peru. In addition to placing consistent orders with their artisan partners, they provide business training and product development/design and no-interest micro-loans and direct grants for workshop capacity building. This holistic approach to business enables our artisan partners to grow their businesses and access new markets without creating cycles of dependency.
Yes, the world needs more love, less war, less judgement, less selfishness. Thank you for taking the time to write in!

I gave this to my husband as one of his gifts for our 10 year anniversary as the theme is tin/aluminum for strength and durability and he loves it especially since it was made from recycled auto parts!
Happy Anniversary! We just learned something new... tin/aluminum for 10 year! Thank you for writing in to share. And here's to your next 10!
