We are always pleased when Fairtrade Fortnight comes around as it shines a spotlight on a practice that fundamentally improves welfare for many across the globe. Fairtrade particularly supports smaller, independent producers and ensures fair wages and working conditions. We believe that Fairtrade is a vital in moving towards a more sustainable and peaceful future, and dream that one day human suffering for consumerism will become unfathomable.
Although the Craft Unit is not affiliated with Fairtrade, it exists to support small charities, community interest companies and the people they work with. These organisations provide positive and holistic working environments for their members, ensuring that they have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
In celebration of Fairtrade Fortnight (24th Feb - 8th March) we will be giving away a delicious Divine chocolate bar with every purchase from the Craft Unit.
We have chosen Divine Chocolate as we particularly admire their company structure, where cocoa growers own 44% of the business. They avoid both palm oil and soya - oh and their chocolate is totally delicious too!
