The Create Fair Trade Story
Create Fair Trade is an ethical retailer that sells a range of Fair Trade, ethical and sustainable products from around the world, including Australian made.
After living in Nepal with her family as a primary school teacher, our founder Robyn, saw first-hand the struggles and exploitation that producers on the other side of the world were experiencing. In 2014, Robyn started Create Fair Trade - a 'for-purpose' business with a conscience.
Create Fair Trade is designed to connect Australian buyers to ethical craft producers around the world who have been paid a fair price for their pieces. We take great care in locating and supporting groups that are the most vulnerable due to their individual circumstances. This includes those with disabilities, widows and those supporting children on extremely low incomes. You can shop with us knowing that your purchase is making a positive impact in people's lives and in the world.
At Create Fair Trade, we aim to source a minimum percentage of our goods from small producer groups that are working towards fair work conditions for themselves and their workers.
We source many of our goods from Fair Trade organisations, start-up co-operatives, and small groups endeavouring to practice the Fair Trade principals but without the means to obtain a guarantee. We also sell ethically and sustainably sourced products that follow similar principals.
Create Fair Trade supports grass roots small producers to stay sustainable and encourage them to practice fair trade principals. We are committed to developing long-term relationships with these groups so the dialogue on fair working conditions can continue.
