Handcrafted pewter made by traditional sand-casting. Our mission is to empower female entrepreneurs in Honduras and to support farmed-animal rescues.
We support sustainability by creating a high-quality product that is made from a lead-free recycled aluminum alloy. Made to last, fighting our throwaway culture.
Empowering female entrepreneurs in Honduras
Every purchase will help to fund seed grants for startups and small businesses. We choose to support female-led businesses because women in Latin America face a disproportionate burden of poverty and violence. Women in Honduras make only 34.6% of the labor force and many women work in low-skilled jobs with poor working conditions.
Supporting farmed-animal rescues
Every purchase will help to fund local organizations dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, and caring for farm animals. The animals are often rescued from abuse, neglect, or slaughter.
