Fair trade products for a fairer world
Fair trade is a social movement aimed at reducing poverty and exploitation by guaranteeing producers a price for their goods which never falls below the cost of production. All the companies listed in our green directory follow fair trade principles. More than 7 million people in Africa, Asia and Latin America benefit from Fair trade – farmers, farm workers, and their families.
Fair trade clothing, sweatshop and pesticide free
Fair trade clothing is both fashionable and ethical! Made with organic cotton by workers who are paid and treatly fairly. In contrast, much mass-produced department store clothing is made in sweatshops, where the workers have few rights. Some companies outsource production to third world countries because they can pay employees much less then they would have to pay for domestic labour. Often child labour is used to cut production costs.
Organic beauty products without the nasties
Organic beauty products do not contain harmful chemicals or pesticides. All the companies listed in our directory follow organic principles, offering everything from natural skincare products, shampoos, organic soaps and toiletries to bath salts and herbs.

Sustainable living, saving the planet and pennies too!
Sustainable living not only helps the planet, it helps your pockets too! Turn off that light and switch off the standby on your television. Recycling can also save you money. Instead of buying new items at inflated prices, why not look for second hand goods at a fraction of the price? It could save you a small fortune over the course of a year and also help the environment.
