Why Choose Fairtrade Bags?
By investing in Fairtrade bags
you are championing a system that aims to support small-scale farmers by providing them with a secure and stable income. The goal is to create a guarantee of fair prices and humane working conditions for both farmers and factory workers alike.
This also benefits the environment as the use of pesticides, toxic
chemicals and GMO seeds is often a consequence of farmers being forced
to cut corners on quality and sustainability in order to meet
unrealistic demands. By offering fair payment and wages, consumers
receive a better product created in a more sustainable way.
Lower social costs yet higher social benefits
No use of harmful, toxic chemicals
Longer and stronger fibres which makes softer and more durable bags
Washable, reusable and customisable

Who are Fairtrade?
Fairtrade is a sustainability label that aims to better the lives of the people who grow and create the things that we love and use on a daily basis. When a product or business meets the stringent standards outlined by Fairtrade it will earn the ertification. It is only applicable to small-scale farmer organisations for certain products such as coffee, cocoa, cotton and rice.
Some of the social, economic and environmental guidelines
that need to be met include decent working conditions, a ban on child labour, forced labour and discrimination, fair payment to farmers, a stable income for workers and an extra sum of money being paid on top of the selling price to invest in business or community projects.
