Welcome to the fairtrade Gift box ~ the gift that gives twice
Fairtrade is at the heart of what we are about. Fairtrade is trade as it should be - trade that puts people and planet before profit. Fairtrade ensures that the artisans or farmers that are creating the gift items are guaranteed: * A fair wage that covers the cost of production * Healthy, fair and safe working conditions * A social premium - extra amount of money that the Fairtrade producers can spend improving their communities, which is often spent on health, education, safe water and environmental projects, or helping Fairtrade Cooperatives improve sustainability and productivity. * Fairtrade cooperatives actively work with the most disadvantaged in their communities. * Fairtrade empowers women, and helps to ensure there is no child or trafficked labour in the workforce. * Fairtrade also helps farmers, work in the most environmentally friendly way possible and help them to adapt to and mitigate the effects of climate change.
At The Fairtrade Gift Box we believe everything in our gift sets should be ethically made, so all our gifts are Fairtrade or Eco friendly items. So feel free to shop with confidence knowing that your purchase is helping to make a difference to many different Fairtrade artisan and farmer communities across the world.
Fairtrade Fortnight 2021 now on, join us for an inspiring range of talks and workshops, including Fairtrade producers from around the World.
our environmental ethos
As well as being Fairtrade, we are very aware of our responsibility as a small business to do what we can to be as eco friendly as possible. Environmental concerns are always addressed by the Fairtrade scheme who include a number of environmental criteria in their certification scheme.

We are also partnering with a programme called One Tree Planted, which means for every order on our website over £20, we will donate $1 for a tree to be planted - read more about this inspiring programme click here. Further we either reuse packaging sent to us, or use packaging from a pioneering green company that was specifically set up to to provide an eco friendly alternative for packaging, and all our cellophane is biodegradeable.
