It’s not too early to start shopping for Christmas
Christmas is only 9 weeks away (we know, we can’t believe either!), and very soon, we’re bound to start thinking of the presents we would love to get for loved ones. If you’re after a gift with an ethical nature, perhaps you might want to consider getting a fair trade gift.
Buying fair trade items means that you’ll be able to give back to those working really hard in 3rd world countries to give you the best quality products. Countries like Ghana are well known for their cocoa trading, buying fair trade chocolates has allowed them to gain better resources and self-deserving wages for their hard work. There are over 1.4 million farmers in these developing countries helping to produce fine products for consumers.
People Tree is a fair trade company, that sells fair trade foods and organic cottons. The motto for People Tree is ‘Sustainable Elegance’, products that help preserve the environment.
Fast fashion retailers produce clothes that are made in sweat shops, and pay their workers below the minimum wage, however People Tree has decided to break those norms and give the farmers what they really deserve by being a part of slow fashion, which goes against exploitation, slum cities and pollution.
The ethical trading brand has created their exciting new Autumn/Winter 2014 collection. It contains the softest cotton, to shield you from the cold this winter, alongside soft, rich colours. Most of the collection is made in India with the finest fabrics and top-notch tailoring.
Rajlakshmi Soft Knits is one of the collections from People Tree, which includes bold colours and light cotton. Assisi Block Colours is the second collection which includes elegant designs with deep colouring, Assisi Stripe And Print, includes stripe patterned clothing with unique prints and designs.
So if you want to give someone a special gift that is 100% sustainable this Christmas then check out People Tree for their latest collection and ethical gift ideas.
