Fair Trade Principles we follow

In Tri Hita Karana Products, we sell products from companies, organizations, foundations and co-operatives that allow time for the balinese to attend to their family and community ceremonies, since this is a very important aspect of their culture. Also that meet the following fair trade principles:

– Respect for the Environment: “Products made from raw materials that originate from sustainably managed sources, and have the least overall impact on the environment. Use recycled or easily biodegradable materials for packing to the extent possible”.

– Payment of a Fair Price: “Fair pay means provision of socially acceptable remuneration (in the local context) considered by producers themselves to be fair and which takes into account the principle of equal pay for equal work by women and men”.

– Ensuring Good Working Conditions: “Provides a safe and healthy working environment for employees and / or members. Working hours and conditions for employees and / or members (and any homeworkers) comply with conditions established by national and local laws and ILO conventions”. 

– Ensuring no Child Labor and Forced Labor: If children are involved  in production (including  learning a traditional art or craft) this may “not adversely affect the children’s well-being, security, educational requirements and need for play”.

 

Note: These principles are part of the “10 fair trade principles“, published by World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO).
