These one-stop packs are meant to give those in need the vitamins and minerals that will help them keep going in especially dire situations like hurricanes, droughts and internal and external conflicts.

On the other end of these mineral-influenced ethical businesses are the less essential: jewelry and accessories. At the same time, however, through creating bijoux that have an ear to fair trade, these innovations become necessary in creating and sustaining the livelihoods of many, especially its producers.
