Fair Trade Products Australia
Fair Trade is our mission at Ethical by Nature! We stock a large range of Fair Trade guaranteed products - from homewares, toys and jewellery to incense, handicrafts and clothing.
Why buy Fair Trade? Products carrying the Fair Trade logo are among the most ethically made in the world. Fair Trade is your guarantee that an artisan has received a fair living wage, works under safe conditions, the item has been made without child labour or modern day slavery, and the product has been made in a way that doesn't harm the environment.

When a product carries any one or more of the Fair Trade logos - or has been made by an organisation with a Fair Trade accreditation - you can have real confidence the product has been genuinely ethically made. That is, it has helped to positively change the lives of marginalised artisans and communities across the world, including Australia, and has been made in a way that is not harmful to the planet.
Most of the products offered by Ethical by Nature come with one or more of these ethical logos or certifications.
The 10 Fair Trade Principles were developed by the World Fair Trade Organization. They set a minimum benchmark for Fair Trade across much of the globe, covering issues like a focus on disadvantaged producers, transparency, fair pay, good working conditions, ending discrimination and capacity builidng as well as incorporating a strong commitment to protecting the environment.
Most importantly, for a product to carry a Fair Trade logo, the supply chain and business practices of the manufacturer - whether a charity, social enterprise or commercial business - must adhere to these strict 10 principles. And they are subject to ongoing Monitoring Auditing to ensure compliance.
