We believe that no matter how much an organisation grows, it is important to stick to the core principles that everybody should be treated equally and fairly. In a business context, when everyone is treated fairly and with care, that same level of care is reflected in the products. That is why here at Edenwood, we are proud to buy our unique, hand painted candles and crockery from Kapula, an established Fair Trade organisation.
The Principles of Fair Trade
- Creating Opportunities for Economically Disadvantaged Producers
- Transparency And Accountability
- Fair Trading Practices
- Payment of a Fair Price
- Ensuring No Child Labour or Forced Labour
- Commitment to Non Discrimination, Gender Equity and Women’s Economic Empowerment, And Freedom of Association
- Ensuring Good Working Conditions
- Providing Capacity Building
- Promoting Fair Trade
- Respect for the Environment
By following these Fair Trade principles Kapula brings a positive energy that is seen in their beautifully painted products. Kapula prides itself on creating sustainable employment and creating unique and vibrant designs. Creativity can only flourish within a positive environment and that is why creativity shines through Kapula’s products.
By operating in a Fair Trade environment, this benefits all stakeholders associated with Kapula including and especially you the customer. The staff benefit from being treated with respect, Edenwood can thrive ethically and customers get vibrant, wonderfully painted products that can give your home some culture and bring your home to life. For many there is also peace of mind that when you purchase a Kapula product, you are supporting a good cause which provides fulfilment in itself.
We are proud to work with Kapula and we hope this partnership continues for the distant future.
