Buying Traidcraft recycled paper products is a great way to care for the world and its people. As well as making a good environmental choice, your purchase contributes to a special Traidcraft producer development fund. Thanks to the money from the fund, Traidcraft's fair trade producers who have already benefitted include:
Eksteenskuil Agricultural Co-operative, our raisin suppliers in South Africa, who are receiving training in key business skills - such as administration and finance - to help strengthen the organisational capacity of a newly formed cooperative.
Craft aid, our long-term sugar producers in Mauritius were able to work towards FLO certification, and Cipac - a honey co-op in Guatemala - are receiving technical assistance to improve the quality and yield of honey from members of the cooperative
Seeds Aplenty in South Africa have also benefitted as they can now pay for packaging and marketing materials to allow them to expand into local markets, while Dezign Inc. in Zimbabwe have been able to buy a digital camera, saving them the continual cost of renting one. Daina Dube, Dezign Inc.'s Export Manager said: "This donation has led to improved business efficiency and communication with customers...This support re-confirms the practice of fair trade principles by Traidcraft plc."
