It's October, Happy... Fair Trade Month!
Fair Trade month is a time dedicated where both brands and ethical-minded consumers join together and celebrate the impact of Fair Trade. Let's celebrate! By supporting fair trade businesses you are empowering farmers, workers, and artisans. We personally thank everyone who is a part of our production cycle for making all Under the Nile products fair trade!
What is Fair Trade?
According to the Fair Trade Federation,
"Fair trade is an approach to business and to development based on dialogue, transparency, and respect that seeks to create greater equity in the international trading system.
Fair trade supports farmers and craftspeople in developing countries who are socially and economically marginalized. These producers often face steep hurdles in finding markets and customers for their goods.”
Under the Nile and Ethical Sourcing.
We know the importance of fair trade principles. Ethical treatment of every person involved in our production chain is a priority. Our philosophy is built on the economics of love - our goal is to enrich the planet and the lives of everyone involved with our business, from “cotton to customer.” We're partnered with SEKEM Farm who ensures that everyone who makes our products works in a comfortable environment and are treated well.
Meet our Family.
We consider SEKEM more than a partnership, they’re family. SEKEM strives to promote a peaceful society and goes beyond the idea of fair trade. They provide opportunity and equality towards all their workers and support them with a safe and healthy work place. The SEKEM Code of Conduct explicitly states our commitment to protect and advocate for human rights in all our activities and spheres of influence.
