We recently wrote about Abe's Market, an innovative new online marketplace for Fair Trade, green and other responsible goods. Today, for Cyber Monday, visit www.AbesMarket.com between 2-4 PM EST (and on Tuesday 11/30 and Wednesday 12/1 this week) to take advantage of great discounts.
You'll also get the chance to chat live with exciting responsible producers, including the founders of Nicobella organic chocolates, Tegu children's toys, Sprout Wellness beauty products, and others. Vendors will appear in 5-6 minute segments to discuss new products and gift ideas, do giveaways, and offer limited-time shopping discounts.
TDG will be logging on via Skype to talk to some of these green business leaders, around 2:40 EST today, so stop by and say hello! We will be giving out an exclusive discount code to TDG readers at that time, so stay tuned. (It will be a two-part word, with the second half of the secret word being "Green." At the end of my Skype session, I'll announce the first half of the word.)
In a recent New York Times article about online green and ethical business shopping portal Abe's Market, co-founder Richard Demb said, "People want to buy from other people. There are very few opportunities to meet the people who make your products. We look at Abe's Market as a limitless farmers' market."
Monday, Nov 29- Wednesday, Dec 1 - 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. EST
