Fairtrade is a global organisation with a vision: 'a world in which all producers can enjoy secure and sustainable livelihoods, fulfil their potential and decide on their future'. We believe this starts with education around the resources and craft that goes into making the things we all love. So, we’re taking this opportunity to spread the word about why we’re so passionate about this movement.
every fairtrade purchase can make a world of difference
We live in a world that offers more choice and freedom than ever before. However, we know the feeling if you’re sometimes overwhelmed by this choice and the unease surrounding the poignant fact that the privilege of freedom is not enjoyed by everyone around the globe.
This feeling is perhaps why more people are searching for alternatives and discovering the simple solution that we can all be a part of: fewer, better products that tell a story of supporting and treating those throughout the supply chain fairly. Change is happening, but there’s still a way to go. Ethically sourced, Fairtrade products may cost a little more than the competition, but they will shine a light on this growing movement and support change. We think that’s worth every penny.
Through mindful consideration of your shopping choices, you’re not only making a positive statement that makes you feel empowered – you’re also helping to empower and support those who are often left invisible, neglected and poor at the end of a complex cotton supply chain.
what does fairtrade mean to us?
Having visited many factories around the globe, we started our journey not only being committed to making everyday living simpler with our home comforts – but to doing things the right way. We’re all aware of the fact that a good night’s sleep is vital to our wellbeing. It’s what we all strive for each night, and we believe that those who helped make the things we love deserve one too.
We partnered with an immensely talented group of farmers, weavers, and factory workers located in a region of India with a long tradition of organic cotton cultivation. With fair living wages and safe environments to work in – free from child labour and discrimination – our extraordinary partners grow and produce according to the highest ethical and sustainable standards (from seed to final product).
We continue to be inspired everyday by the innovation, initiatives, and humanitarian efforts of our carefully selected partners, and to be supporting economic opportunity for those in the cotton industry who have historically been underserved by big corporations.
When you choose to buy from Dip & Doze, you’re not only getting your hands on deeply considered products that will make a positive difference to your daily life, but also to those who helped make them. There's SO much good you can be a part of, simply by choosing Fairtrade.
