Almost every product you find sitting on the shelves is manufactured simply to supply a demand and to be monetized. There are very few companies that manufacture products that ‘give back’. These are called ethical or fair-trade gifts.
These types of gifts have slowly been making their presence known and many people opt for ethical and fair-trade products as their go to gift now. The good news is, more small businesses have ethical and fair-trade products available for corporate gifting.
Here are a few reasons why you should include ethical fair-trade products in your corporate gifting:
1: You Give Back
By buying a fair-trade product you are giving back to the producers of that product:
Fairtrade is unique in offering four important benefits for producers:
1. Stable prices that cover the costs of sustainable production; Ethical and fair-trade products are directly sourced from the factories/villages they are produced in.
2. Market access that enables buyers to trade with producers who would otherwise be excluded from market.
3. Partnership, producers are involved in decisions that affect their future.
4. Empowerment of farmers and workers (assistance for producers to understand more about market conditions and trends and to develop knowledge, skills and resources to exert more control and influence over their lives and promote humane working conditions for workers).
2: You Support an Advocacy
Many small businesses who fully promote ethical and fair-trade gifts usually have an advocacy behind its operation. A good portion of their proceeds support one form of charity or another. They could be advocating more employment opportunities in a third-world country or helping kids get an education with every purchase.
