Fairtrade Fortnight runs from Monday 27th February - Sunday 12th March. It's a fun-filled highlight of the year, when campaigners, businesses, schools and places of worship show their support for the farmers and workers who grow our food in developing countries.
To help support the incentive, we've selected some of our favourite products from www.ethicalsuperstore.com
- Simply Gentle Organic Cotton Facial Pads - £3.49, now £2.79
Made from 100% Fairtrade organic certified cotton these facial pads are ideal for removing make up gently and they're certified Organic by the Soil Association. A little goes a long way and we found that your whole face could be cleansed with just two pads maximum.
– Fair Squared Hand Cream - Natural Honey & Olive - £4.50, now £3.60
This everyday hand moisturiser contains the amazing hydrating and protective properties of Olive Oil and Honey. It's also Vegetarian Society approved and made in the UK, but the gentle fragrance and the nourishing formula will also catch your eye.
– Urtekram Brown Sugar Shampoo - £5.35, now £4.28
Not only is this shampoo Fairtrade, it's Organic too. The organic Brown Sugar is sourced from Paraguay, where the farmers have fair working conditions and are guaranteed a good price for their sugar. And that enables them to fund their children's schooling and electricity supplies to their houses - things we take for granted here in the UK! Lightly scented with eucalyptus and lavender, each product is naturally softening and moisturising - and the range is now complemented with the addition of Shampoo. Certified organic by Ecocert, no parabens, or other synthetic preservatives are used.
– Fair Squared Olive Oil & Apricot Facial Cream - £14.99, now £11.99
This wonderful brand new face cream by Fair Squared contains amazing moisturising and protecting qualities of olive oil and apricot kernel oil which will leave you looking radiant. The facial cream contains 7% ingredients traded to fairtrade standards using apricot oil from Pakistan and olive oil from Palestine. Excellent for use below make up.
