World Fair Trade Day takes place on 11th May 2019. Organised by the World Fair Trade Organisation, the aim of the day is to celebrate Fair Trade and encourage the public to, where possible, choose Fair Trade goods which are fair and ethical. That involves the observation of human rights of all involved, paying fairly for goods/services, and sustainably sourced materials.
At Workwear Express, we have a number of products which adhere to Fair Trade standards. And we are always looking to expand our range of garments which are organic, ethically sourced and sustainable.
In fact, we recently added a new brand to our site who are setting a great ethical standard. Stanley/Stella have created a highly fashionable range made using certified organic cotton. They also are officially certified by PETA, confirming that they are suitable for vegans.
You also may already be aware of Ecologie range by AWDis. The range includes t-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies which are all created from ecologically friendly cotton, ensuring you can style with a conscience.
Away from these two fantastic ranges though, what other organic garments do we provide? We have picked out some of our favourite ethically sourced products:
The Premier Fairtrade Apron is suitable for establishments who have a Fairtrade ethical policy in relation to the products they use. This apron is made from 100% Certified Fairtrade Cotton so the customer can be assured of its credentials.
An alternative to the full-length bib apron, this mid-length waist apron is also made from 100% Certified Fairtrade Cotton. Again, this ensures the apron is suitable for establishments who have a Fairtrade ethical policy in relation to the products they use.
A classic tote-style bag from Westford Mill which is suitable for a number of environments, from personal use at the shops to corporate use at promotional events. Made using ethically sourced 100% cotton canvas, the bag is Fairtrade certified.
This B&C Men’s T-Shirt contains 100% organically grown cotton which maintains a luxurious feel and ensures long-wearing comfort. Certified and approved by Ecocert Greenlife, Fair Wear Foundation & OEKOTEX 100.
And now the women’s version! As you would expect, it is made exactly the same way. Made from combed organic cotton which is certified and approved by Ecocert Greenlife, Fair Wear Foundation & OEKOTEX 100. Allowing you to create a matching, organic uniform.
