How to Support Greece: Our Favorite Exports for Your Closet and Your Kitchen

07/07/2015 • IT'S CHIC TO BE GREEK

As Greece teeters on the brink of financial ruin, much of the world has been gripped with a feeling of helplessness. One sweet attempt at a solution came out of London, when Thom Feeney, a 29-year-old former shoe shop worker, began a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for the country’s bailout. In nine days, the campaign has raised nearly 2 million euros, but with only thirteen hours to go, it will fall well short of its 1.6 billion euro goal. While Feeney’s heartfelt fund may not have provided the country with an economic solution, the money pledged underscores the world’s desire to contribute—in any way possible. One way to support Greece is to invest in its domestic industry, in Greek fashion, in Greek foodstuffs, in Greek jewelry. Luckily, in these areas, one is spoiled for choice. Take a look at our favorite Greek exports—from gladiator-style sandals to Kalamata olives—to stock up on in the country’s time of need.
