Innovation Update from Peru: Relevant and Real Sustainability

In janneke smeulders, peru, Sustainability, Third World Products on July 5, 2007 at 2:41 pm

Greetings from Spangy! As many of you know the Live Earth concert starts July 7 to bring attention to Global Warming, worth a look. But to more immediate ways to impact the world, we introduce to the world, Fairmail. This is an innovative group started by Janneke Smeulders. She teaches relevant skills to women in Peru and they produce the most amazing greeting cards you will want to buy. This is the type of gift for the person or company who has everything, or truly wants to make a statement.

At Spangy, we believe the route to relevant and real economic sustainability for the world’s poorest people is through economic empowerment by making real transactions and not donations. Our mission is to bring product and service innovations that change lives for the world’s poorest 4 billion people, many of whom live on less than $3 dollars a day and often much less.

Next, our featured member on Spangy.com is Josef Borat from Germany. He is a reporter for OhmyNews International and he has exceptionally articles on his Spangy.com member page, so check him out.

Spangy.com is a social networking community whose mission is to provide free advertising for entrepreneurs and social change agents of developing countries to improve the lives of people in developing countries. Our vision is for the world’s poorest people to participate fully in the global economy without charge to get them started on the road to viable economic sustainability without relying on donations.
