I have been a consultant for One Earth for a little over 2 years now and have enjoyed every minute of it. I have met and made some great and lasting friendships since I started with the company. Along with providing an income for myself and my daughters, and a sustainable income for our Artisan Partners in Morocco and Peru.
Back in May 2013 I just started out with Latasia- another direct sales company which is now no longer available and wanted to add another business but wanted it to be different, unique, and be in the fair trade industry some how. Most of the Fair Trade direct sales companies I talked to were not going to expand to Canada which left me feeling hopeless actually and could see myself being successful at it. And then something happened while I was on Facebook ( yes I have been a fan of Facebook for sometime now and A LOT of people are on it) and I noticed a promoted advertisement on my timeline feed ( where we usually check to see what are friends have been up too lol). This promoted advertisement would surely change my life along with others throughout the earth in the years to come.
One Earth was a new Canadian Company starting out with a different outlook in the business sector. One Earth was about people helping people in different countries. When I learned more about the business and the co-founders behind the business it made me fall in love with it more, and so I jumped in with both my feet as fast as I could.
When starting with this company I knew it was going to be different from the get go. The reason being is because we are working with People and not machines. It was not about the mass production of products. It was based on a very simple model that I think we has people tend to forget . It’s about the People.
During the first few months of signing up, the company was still making sure all the i’s and t’s were dotted and crossed to make sure that the connections were made. All of the founding consultants were waiting patiently ( well on pins and needles for some of us) for the products to arrive on Canadian soil, for our kits and to start rocking the business as they say. 🙂
One Earth started out with working with Artisans in Morocco. From Women’s Co-operatives (Because they were either outcasted by their society, or women who were widowed and needed to make a living to support their families) who we work with on our spaline of products. (Black Soap, Argan Soap bars, 100% Argan Oil, and One Earth’s All over Body Clay).
To our Artisans partners who produce our Scarfs, Shoes, Purses, Glasses, Teapots, Coasters, and Jewelry. The Artisans keep to the traditions that have been passed down through the generations to be able to provide you with something that is handmade from the heart.
During One Earth’s first year we made a connection with Artisans from Morocco. In One Earth’s second year we added Peru to our product line up and Artisan Partners. Each year thereafter One Earth with be introducing Artisans partners from a new country along with keeping with the Artisan Partners they work with in Morocco and Peru. Here’s just a few of the item’s you can see in our Peruvian line up.
