Macy’s, Inc. has a number of exclusive merchandising initiatives involving products with a focus on
social responsibility. These are three ongoing product programs available at Macy’s and one new
Macy’s Path to Peace – Path to Peace merchandise, part of Macy’s “gifts
that give hope” initiative, includes woven baskets and bowls handmade by Rwandan women who have
survived civil war and genocide. The fair trade program supports economic stability and has changed the
lives of individual weavers and entire communities through the public health initiatives and HIV/AIDS
care it supports. In 2015, Macy’s celebrated 10 years of its Rwanda Path to Peace initiative with
a collection of commemorative bowl designs to honor the longstanding partnership. The products are
available on macys.com and in select Macy’s stores; find details at
Macy’s Heart of Haiti – Heart of Haiti decorative pieces (such as textiles,
metalwork and housewares) are a collection of fair trade masterpieces created by artisans impacted by the
2010 earthquake. Steady income helps to provide better nutrition, improved education and access to health
care. Heart of Haiti also offers new opportunities for artists to collaborate with U.S. designers,
strengthening artisan associations and inspiring and energizing their communities. The products are available
on macys.com and in select Macy’s stores as part of Macy’s “gifts that give hope” initiative.
