Did you know?
For the past two weeks it has been Fairtrade Fortnight?
Fairtrade Fortnight is the annual campaign to raise awareness and promote products carrying the FAIRTRADE Mark. Every year campaigners around the country organise thousands of events such as breakfasts, banquets, fashion shows and football matches – all using or promoting Fairtrade items. By encouraging our communities to make small changes and buy Fairtrade products regularly we can trigger a positive change in the lives of producers.
Fairtrade is a rapidly growing international movement which seeks to guarantee a better deal for farmers and workers in the developing world. A product that is Fairtrade certifies carries a label, the FAIRTRADE Mark.
Although Mai Pearls products do not support the Fairtrade mark, we do aim to bring to the public ethical handmade pearl jewellery. Each piece of jewellery is handmade by a small group of mainland Chinese women. Mai Pearls supports fair trade and local community initiatives. This means that we ensure our suppliers are paid fair wages for their work; working conditions are safe and of a good standard and no children are exploited. Mai Pearls gives 10% of its profits to Operation Blessings, Chinese orphan care program.
Mai Pearls also cares about the environment and we promise to try to minimise excess packaging as well as using items with recycled content. We also use recycle print materials when possible.
