Why shop for Fair Trade gifts at Easter, or indeed at any time of the year?
It’s a popular question I get asked.
Well, because the products are :-
1/ Handmade by skilled artisans and therefore of top quality.
2/ Coming from the developing world they are really unique and not found in UK High Streets or supermarkets.
3/ Producers get paid a Fair Price for their labour and their working conditions are humane.
4/ You can be sure that no child labour has been involved.
5/ You will often be supporting traditional handicrafts and skills.
6/ You are also supporting a small, independent, ethically-minded UK business you can trust, rather than a large multinational company – so thank you for that.
7/ And finally, the recipient of the gift will be delighted you have put thought into selecting something ethical (and often recycled!)
I hope you agree that it`s a great idea to shop for Fair Trade gifts at Easter
