Fair Trade is a market based approach to solving social, economic and environmental injustice. Under Fair Trade standards, producers in developing countries are afforded economic opportunities to better their living conditions and have more control over their own lives. At the same time, environmental sustainability is given high priority as a key element in growth for current and future generations. It is a system based on transparency, communication, and understanding.

The fair trade system strengthens the skills of the producers to grow and become self sufficient in the international trading arena. By connecting consumers more directly to producers in developing countries and reducing middle men, the local artisans make livable wages, and the consumers enjoy products that are backed by a unique story and history. It is a mutually beneficial relationship that leads to a more just international trading system, as well as a greater cultural understanding across boundaries. Fair Trade has seen tremendous growth in the past decade indicating that consumers have become more conscious of how and where they spend their money.

It is their goal to offer the opportunity for consumers to connect with various artisans throughout the world by way of their fine craftsmanship and unique stories.

While I certainly have not done enough to help the environment and our planet, I still feel strongly that we must at least make some effort to ensure the prosperity of our beautiful Earth. One of those small steps is supporting companies that also feel a responsibility to give back to the world. KOR is one of those companies.

I believe KOR’s logo sums up the company best. Representing the Chinese principle of yin-yang, The KOR logo is a balance between two opposing yet complimentary elements. The blue and the green represents the balance and relationship between Earth and Water.

Additional the shape of the logo ascends upward yet the two sides never touch. I found this symbolism fascinating. According to KOR, the divided gap is the representation of our goals and achievements. To the path of perfection (upward), we find ourselves always in the position of continuation and perfection without a definitive end. It is the balance and finding that balance that allows for continued progress.

Like KOR, I believe water is important and the “core” of all of us. But our need and want for clean water should not result in mountains of plastic bottles that are used once and thrown away in landfills. This is why buying reusable water bottles from companies like KOR is much for environmentally friendly. Not to mention, reusable water bottles are cost efficient as well.

What is especially admirable about KOR is their advocacy work. KOR donates a percentage of their sales through their Thirst for Giving™ program. Not only that, they are strong advocates on water-related issues and helps spread awareness to worthy causes. I could not be more proud to work with this fantastic company in this review/giveaway event.

๓●•۰ MY REVIEW ۰•●๓

I had the opportunity to review the giveaway item: KOR Aura Hydration Vessel (500 mL, in Ice Blue)

My Review: The vessel is simply beautiful. Whoever designed this bottle is brilliant. The simplicity and modern look of the bottle reminds me of Star Trek or some other futuristic world. All the colors available give off a fresh appearance that fits well in the water-theme. I chose Ice Blue, but I wish I had all the colors!

I thought the size of the 500 mL was perfect for me. The dimensions are 8.56″ tall, 2.74″ wide, 2.74″ deep at base. It weighs only 5.1 oz. and can fill 500 mL (16.9 oz.) of water. I drink water throughout the day, whether at work or at the gym, but I prefer to fill my water often to ensure that my water is always fresh and clean. I also like the size of this smaller version because I like carrying it around with me. If you want to fill your water bottle less frequently, KOR gives you the option of purchasing their 750 mL. You can hold more water, but it is bigger and heavier.

The quality of the material is top-notch. The functionality of the bottle is great as well; the twist-off cap is designed to keep your bottle and water free from germs and bacteria. My only down-side with the bottle is that the mouthpiece is too narrow to fit my hand into, so I cannot hand wash inside the bottle with any scrub. This isn’t a problem for those who have dish washers, of course.

Other than this slight negative, this KOR Aura Hydration Vessel is so fantastic that any negative is outshined by all the positives. I have been using this everyday for the past several weeks, and it has become one of my must-have items in my purse.
