Tis the season for things to get hectic. Take some time to relax with the cinnamon- and ginger-scented Gingerbread Man Soap from Palam Rural Centre in India. This soap was created by makers traditionally belonging to a caste of leather workers. Working with fair trade partner Palam Rural Centre and empowered with income-earning opportunities, people in this once-marginalized group have been able to purchase modest homes and send their children to school.
