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.
I've always been profoundly impressed by the quality of its research and its writing and how readily accessible it makes otherwise complex world affairs. Each of its ten annual editions is a short course in something profound.
What motivated the founders of the New Internationalist magazine was a high idealism; a real sense that we could change things; that if people knew the facts about what was going on, then they could actually have the wherewithal to campaign and try to make the world a better place.
New Internationalist magazine is a fantastic, informative "tell it like it really is" read and gives me an insight into what is actually going on on this poor battered planet we temporarily inhabit.
The Education Web Guide team were particularly impressed by the quality and educational content (of the New Internationalist magazine)
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.
