CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO.

 

Come join us for our recent live video chat with Nancy Dunitz, founder of fellow Fair Trade Federation member Dunitz & Company. Learn about Nancy's entrepreneurial journey working with Guatemalan artisans for more than 25 years, from early pillow covers to today's stunning beaded and fused glass jewelry.

Nancy has become a great friend and collaborator of HoonArts over the last few years, and it's a delight to have her join us for the first of a series of free-ranging chats with other socially conscious entrepreneurs. These chats are intended to introduce and highlight other business leaders who are focused on making the world a better place--businesses that care just as much about people and the planet as they do about profit. Together, we're building a whole new business eco-system built on collaboration instead of competition.
