Handmade One Size Fits All Roll On Glass Beaded Bracelets
Sashka Co. bracelets are handcrafted by artisans in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal. Proceeds from their sales help Nepalese artisans get themselves out of poverty through fair trade. Fair Trade enables sustainable development and community empowerment by cultivating a more equitable global trade model that benefits farmers, workers, consumers, industry, and the earth.
I want to show you what is meant by fair trade and why it is so important. I never truly understood how important this is until I visited other countries and seen how people live. It can be a rude awakening for us in the United States that are accustomed to our spoiled lives. One country, Jamaica, the people earn $1 per day, could you live on that? No and neither can they.
Fair trade pricing help people to earn enough to cover their basic needs like food, shelter, and more. They also are paid promptly and can receive access to pre-production financing. They are taught and introduced to building long-term relationships between importers and producers. With long-term contracts they will have consistent work and job security, just like we want in our jobs.
Fair trade also gives employment without discrimination. They also get equal pay for equal work for everyone. 70% of fair trade artisans are women and are the sole wage earner in the home. Women can complete their daily tasks and hold a leadership position and have an equal voice in decision making.
Another issue fair trade help with is the safe and healthy working condition for artisans and farmers. They do not allow forced or exploited child labor. Finances, management policies and practices of businesses engaged in fair trade are transparent.
So now that you understand a little more about fair trade, you can see why it is needed in some countries. Please watch for the fair trade logo. This is the Fair Trade USA and if you click on the picture you can learn more.
