Another prize added from SHARED EARTH
SHARED EARTH was founded in York in 1986 by Managing Director, Jeremy Piercy. One of the first Fair Trade shops to open on the high street, SHARED EARTH has expanded considerably and now has ten shops around the UK. The Manchester shop has been open 21 years and deals with over 35 overseas suppliers, making them the largest retailer and wholesaler of Fair Trade products in the UK. Some of the countries their products come from are Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Mauritius,
Madagascar, Guatemala, Bali and the Philippines.
Fair Trade is a growing trend and the public’s interest is part of a general concern amongst consumers about the ethical issues behind the products we buy. Fair Trade ensures that workers are paid reasonable prices for their work, child labour is avoided and sustainable materials are used wherever possible.
