Jack and I set out this week with one goal in mind: Put totes in stores. We hit the ground running, jumped in the handy dandy wagon and went store hopping around Blacksburg, Charlottesville and Richmond.
After a tote sale in the parking lot at Whole Foods,
spending $7 on one beer in Richmond (What? $7? Take us back to Blacksburg!), and hours of store-owner chatting, we are in a handful of stores around the state! And of those stores, Whole Foods is in the running for being the first chain to carry totes. Have you heard about their Whole Planet Program? Microloans for microentrepreneurs around the world. Incredible program, from a world-wide chain. What they call Conscious Capitalism... Something we're all about at Taaluma Totes!
So for those of you in Blacksburg, Charlottesville and Richmond, go see the totes in person and try one on for yourself! Go get em' tiger!
On another note, two new Ghana totes have been added to our collection.
And the Ghana tote on the right is ESPECIALLY limited, with only 6 available. So jump on it while supplies last!
Happy totin' and here's to Feeling Good because after all, it's Friday!
The beauty of Nepal will take your breath away.
However, lack of proper waste management in Nepal is beginning to degrade some of that beauty. In many places, around 70% of waste is dumped in rivers or burned on the side of the road. This has contributed to pollution and disease in Nepal’s communities.
It is Taylor’s mission to change that.
The Middle East is known for its ancient history, vast deserts, and religious roots.
From being caught in the pyramid-dle of history in Cairo, to taking in the Israeli great views of Jerusalem, to resting on the Abu’ndant sands of Abu Dhabi.
It’s been 8 years since the idea for Taaluma Totes was born while on a life-changing trip to Uganda.
Since then, we’ve been able to fund 41 microloans for small business owners living in Uganda.
From Moses, a 24-year-old coffee farmer who used his loan to buy mulch.
