With every step in this ecosystem, Indian Yards Foundation and The Good Gift combined, we seek to answer 3 primary questions - Is it good for you? Is it good for the maker? Is it good for the planet?
The Good Gift is Craftmark certified, a WFTO provisional member, Goodmarket approved, SEWF-verified social enterprise and an UN FOA's Mountain Partnerships member.
Craftmark authenticates genuine hand-crafted processes from all over India. Established in 2006, Craftmark develops sector-wide, process-specific standards and norms for labeling a product as hand-made and increases consumer awareness of distinct handicraft traditions. They authenticate handmade products and therefore, the applicants undergo a strict verification process by Craftmark representatives.
The World Fair Trade Organization is a global community that verifies Social Enterprises as practicing Fair Trade. To be a member, the enterprise must prove that they are putting the planet and the interests of indigenous and marginalized artisans, farmers and workers first. They use Peer Reviews and independent audits to ensure that the enterprise is practicing the 10 principles of Fair Trade.
Good Market is an online curated ecosystem that makes it easier to find and connect with Social Enterprises, cooperatives and other responsible businesses, or changemakers. It is a community platform designed around transparency. To facilitate trade, collaboration and collective action.
SEWF Verification recognises existing regional and national social enterprise verification systems. The service aims to support the growth of the global social enterprise ecosystem and expand market access for all social enterprises globally.
The Mountain Partnership is a United Nations voluntary alliance of partners dedicated to improving the lives of mountain peoples and protecting mountain environments around the world.
