A beautiful chestnut brown, sustainable leather journal with embossed Tree of Life design. It has two leather flap fold overs with brass snap closures and 96 pages of unlined tree-free paper.
In Rajasthan, India, cows are sacred and honoured for their milk, labour and spirit. Revered, they are allowed to live well until they die of old age. After they die, their hides are treated naturally - without the use of harmful chemicals - and made into beautiful handcrafts like this journal.
The paper in these journals is also tree-free, made from discarded cotton scraps collected from the textile industry.
The perfect gift for a friend with an ethical bent.
The New Internationalist brings to life the people, the ideas and the action in the fight for global justice.
Winner - Consumer Magazine category.
The New Internationalist is one of the most profound magazines.
The Independent Press Awards are selected by the editors of Utne Reader magazine to 'honour independent efforts that provide bold, innovative, thought-provoking alternatives to mass media fare.' The New Internationalist magazine won the inaugural 1989 award for International Coverage.
Since then, the magazine has won the award for 'Best International Coverage' another eight times, most recently in 2013. In the year 2000 the New Internationalist also won the highly valued readers' poll.
The New Internationalist magazine is not being screwed or manipulated by any dominant ideological group or any dominant corporate interest. Therefore the New Internationalist editorial is genuinely the New Internationalist editorial.
New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience: Mahaguthi Craft supports the development of micro-enterprises and helps disadvantaged producers improve their quality of life in Nepal.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
