Investing in Fair Trade

Fair trade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability,
and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.

 

Fair Trade Certified Organic Cotton

PRINCIPLES OF FAIR TRADE

The fair trade guaranteed minimum price covers the costs of production and provides a sustainable livelihood for cotton producers.

The fair trade premium enables co-operatives to fund projects that benefit the organization and the wider community, such as business and agricultural training; drilling bore holes for clean water; building schools and clinics.

Fair trade producers benefit from advance payment and long-term relationships with buyers.

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers,
including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.

WHY ORGANIC?

Grown without any synthetic agricultural fertilizers or pesticides.

Never uses genetically modified seeds.

Conserves soil though crop rotation.

Retains water more efficiently due to increased organic matter in the soil.

Controls weeds through physical removal rather than chemical destruction.

Controls insects by maintaining a balance between “pests” & their natural predators.
