How You Can Buy Change
eTraid is takes an ethical approach to doing business. Focusing on the sale of fair trade, sustainable products, we’re trying to make a difference in parts of the world that often go unnoticed. All around us are disadvantaged communities of people with skill and creativity worthy of attention. This is where we come in; we wanted to help others showcase their talents and be fairly paid for their work at the same time.
We’re proud to sell a wide variety of products that are made following the 10 Fair Trade Principles set by the World Fair Trade Organisation. The money raised from the sale of our jewellery, accessories, scented candles and numi tea, is sent to to help improve the lives of them and their family.
Sharing Their Story
We don’t just want to tell you about the people who make your candles, tea or jewellery- we want you to see them, and hear their story in their own words. That’s why we’ve included information on some of our fair trade workers on our website, so you can tangibly see the people your money is helping whenever you buy one of our products.
In order to create the various different products available on our website, we’ve teamed up with over 20 fair trade goods producers who each contribute to making the world a better place. Bead for Life, a producer of bracelets and necklaces, supports an estimated 1,200 underprivileged Ugandan women who earn their income by making beaded jewellery. Bugz Workshop helps over 25 Zulu people who have had to live in poverty as a result of unemployment in South Africa. This is just two examples of the outstanding producers we choose to work with in an attempt to make this world a more sustainable, fair place for everyone to live.
