From Tropical Mangos to Sunny Main Streets: How Mango + Main Is Making a Difference

Recently I discovered a boutique called Mango + Main. (Shoutout to Instagram for taking online shopping to a whole new level.) The idea they promote is that products made by artisans in areas where mangos grow can be sent to the main streets of America.

When I saw that M+M sells only fair-trade products, my interest was peaked. I’m all for this type of work! Not only do the profits received from the purchase of these products go back to the artisans who made them, the products they create and produce are absolutely beautiful. These artisans desire to earn profit to better their communities, support their families, and thwart a life of poverty. You can read more about the artisans from all over the world that make these incredible, handcrafted products here.

Mango + Main’s business is so much bigger than themselves. Each purchase, no matter how big or small, makes a difference in the artisans’ lives. So while the consumer receives authentically-created, intricately designed products, the artisans are supported in their work. M+M is making a beautiful relationship possible in this way.

I believe it’s worth spreading the word about companies who are doing business like this. Not only do these kinds of businesses give back, they remind us of the importance in doing so in our day-to-day lives and inspire us to remember to serve and put others first. I’ve linked the bags and keychain I have (and love!), plus some of my favorite M+M pieces below.

I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”
Acts 20:35
