BigNews.Biz - Aug 02,2011 - While staying with friends in El Salvador, Nicole Lombardo met a young prostitute with a story that broke her heart. With minimal employment opportunities and two small children at home, this young woman had been forced to enter into sex trade in order to provide for her family. Hearing her story, and knowing this occurs everyday the world over, Nicole knew there was something she had to do.
Enter Lusso Bags, a line of stylish and practical accessory bags for daily and travel use, where 5% of the sales generated go toward the fight against human trafficking. The Lusso Bags business model operates on two principals: donate proceeds to organizations that seek to abolish human trafficking, and help women directly escape life in the sex trade through direct employment, by manufacturing its bags. All Lusso Bags sub contractors must provide safe working environments, access to education, health benefits, and economic freedom.
