What does it mean to be a Fair Trade Innovator?
What is a Responsible Consumer?
So what is Innovative about the partnership between Villageworks and Fair Trade Scotland?
The guarantee for the consumer that the 10 WFTO Principles are adhered to in the whole supply chain from Villageworks (producer) to Fair Trade Scotland (importer).
Never underestimate the power that the £/$ in your pocket can have – be informed, be responsible and let’s work together to prove that there is a different way to purchase products that benefit the majority – not the few.
The Problem as we see it:
Warehouses full of stock from producers that sit on shelves and go out of fashion – due to lack of retail sales.
Building Capacity at the producers pace is not always taken into consideration.
Online shopping may be easy but it’s difficult to know for sure exactly where the goods are sourced.
So what are the next steps?
As a consumer – We need people to sign up and pledge to purchase a WFTO Fair Trade Tartan Backpack.
As an Innovator – Measuring the social impact that buying a Backpack will have on the weavers, is our top priority – your purchase will help us to do this.
