We want to provide global reach to remarkable, remote artisans!
Why does GlobeIn use the Fair Trade system?
As a company, GlobeIn is committed to the concept of Fair Trade, an arrangement designed to help producers in emerging economies achieve sustainable and equitable trade relationships. To affirm our commitment to Fair Trade and join a community of like-minded companies, GlobeIn is a member of the Fair Trade Federation, a trade association of fair trade businesses fully committed to equitable and sustainable trading partnerships. The Fair Trade Federation (FTF) supports members in order to grow the global movement of trade that values the health of the planet, and the labor, dignity, and equity of all people.
At GlobeIn, we embody the ethos of the FTF by taking action on 9 principles identified as having the potential to positively impact our trade relationships. These 9 principles are as follows:
You do not need to have a specific Fair Trade membership or certification to partner with us, as long as your organization is embodying these principles as well as the GlobeIn specific principles listed below.
How do I apply to become an Artisan Partner?*
1. Artisan groups interested in working with GlobeIn, apply here to become an Artisan Partner. Our work on the 9 principles of Fair Trade begin at this stage. All applicants agree that they too are upholding the principles.
2. After you complete your application, our Impact Team will follow-up to better understand in what ways you have applied the principles in your work. Each applicant confirms that the following statements are true for them and answers 3 corresponding questions to explain:
3. Once an applicant has completed this process, we can begin negotiating to purchase your products. A number of factors influence this process: Production capacity - do you have the capacity at this time to complete the order? Timeline - can this order be produced, packaged, and shipped given our timelines? Price - can your team produce these products at this price, with artisans receiving a living wage for their work?
