Planet earth is our only home. We all want to be in safe, work within fair payment and lead the dignified life as everyone deserves on this planet. Through each product we invite you to make a positive impact by choosing the ethical over easy.
Fair Trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect, that seeks greater equality in international trade. The goal is that all our products are made according to Fairtrade standards. Meaning fair pricing, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world enabling makers to improve their position and have more control over their lives.
We are engaged in supporting producers and awareness raising, making products and business in a sustainable way. By being the official representative of People Tree based in Finland, we want to be leading the way towards Fair Trade business models together with other companies and influencers.
We are delighted that women in Finland enjoy a high degree of equality. Their position in society and business is well-respected and better in comparison to women in many cultures. However, only less than 10% of the startup funding amounts has been granted for innovations and important businesses established by women. We want to change this inequality.
Women are leaders, change makers, care takers, peace keepers - so much more. UN WOMEN campaign #orangetheworld highlights that ending violence against women is everyone’s business. >
