Revy: Shop with a conscience. Shop fair trade.
When you purchase a Revy Fair Trade product, you help the people of El Salvador and the planet at the same time. Revy means revitalization. We approach nature as we do our artisans. With nature, our emphasis is both on recycling and natural materials.
The people of El Salvador are among the most generous and determined you’ll find anywhere. Emerging from a civil war, they are striving to improve their daily lives and rebuild their ravaged country. Revy works with individuals and coops to help them earn a living wage and provide a brighter future for themselves and their children.
Located in Santa Rosa less than an hour from the capital, the artisans at Alabi Recycling work with various materials which all come from scrap. One of the most popular items are handbags made from recycled tires or inner tubes. Tires and inner tubes litter the roadsides and provide a means to breed mosquitoes that carry malaria. Removing these tires from the road helps the environment while creating a healthier El Salvador.
