We currently do not contribute to individual conservation societies, but will in the near future.
Our contributions are currently only through Fairtrade International/Fairtrade America. The Fairtrade system secures better working conditions and better terms of trade for nearly 2 million farmers and workers worldwide. Fairtrade farmers are protected by the Fairtrade Minimum Price, which creates a safety net, guaranteeing farmers their agreed upon market price.
Beyond a fair price, the Fairtrade Premium is paid to the farmer/producer cooperatives whom democratically vote on how they would like to invest funds back into their community, such as investing in equipment and community resources; whether it be a water well, a grain mill, school supplies or health clinics.
The Fairtrade system keeps farmers out of debt and improves the livelihood and quality of life for all the community.Every purchase of a Origanami Bed Linen product contribute money to the farmers and their community.
