Home Trends That Do Good

I know, I know, I’ve just written a post about my shopping addictions, and TK Maxx is one place that does not help me! Their home stuff is so so cool though, it’s alright to look, right?!

Well, actually, how about buying really cool stuff for your home AND knowing that it gives back, that it helps disadvantaged families? Look at these bright, colourful woven pieces of tableware that are bang on trend with this season’s Tribal trend. I especially love the turquoise bowl.

This range of unique, hand-crafted homeware from TK Maxx and HomeSense are sourced and made by remote communities in Western Uganda. It’s part of an initiative to help some of the most disadvantaged families increase their incomes so they can afford to send their children to school.

TK Maxx and HomeSense have been working in Uganda since 2008 enabling more than 10,000 children to go to school. Since the sustainable trade project started in 2011, there has been a 40% increase in children finishing primary school education.

So hey, if I going to spend out of my weekly budget, I’d be happy to buy these bits and bobs, as it’s helping little kiddos in Uganda go to school. Something we do take for granted in this country with our free education. The products are not too expensive either, with platters and vases at £12.99, lidded baskets at £14.99 and rice spoons at £5.99.

These unique Uganda homeware pieces are instore now at both TK Maxx and HomeSense. What do you think, are you going to have a look for them?  I may pop into Slough’s TK Maxx tomorrow 😉
