It’s Fairtrade fortnight (Monday 29th February – Sunday 13th March 2016) & at Rosy Rosie we are celebrating with 20% off our Fairtrade products!
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers. At Rosy Rosie we are proud to stock a number of Fairtrade ranges including Pebble (handmade toy rattles for newborns) & Lanka Kade (wooden jigsaws and play sets.)
Pebble have been awarded the WFTO (World Fairtrade Organization) Guaranteed Fair Trade (one of only 20 guaranteed in Asia) and Lanka Kade – as well as having their own Fairtrade policies – complies with the 10 Principles of Fair Trade as set by WFTO.
WFTO introduced the Guarantee system in 2014 as a revolutionary new way to ensure fair trade throughout the supply chain. Only organisations that have been audited for the Guaranteed system are allowed to use the WFTO Guaranteed Fair Trade logo on their products. If you’d like to know more about the system then have a look at the WFTO website.
Probably, like me, you are more used to seeing the Fairtrade Mark on your foods and clothing….
…..it’s a registered certification label for products sourced from producers in developing countries. Products with the Fairtrade Mark must meet international Fairtrade standards as set by the international certification body Fairtrade International. These standards are agreed through research and consultation with members of the Fairtrade scheme, including farmers and workers themselves, traders, NGOs, academic institutions and labelling organisations such as the Fairtrade Foundation.
With Fairtrade you have the power to change the world every day. With one simple choice you can get farmers and workers a better deal – and that means they can make their own decisions, control their futures and lead the dignified life everyone deserves.
The UK’s Fairtrade Fortnight 2016 campaign website is now live at www.fairtrade.org.uk/breakfast. Why not take a look and see what you can do to make the world a better, fairer place?!
