St Valentine’s Day this year marks a special anniversary for us. It’s been 10 years since we started selling Fairtrade roses, and in that time we’ve bought over 100million stems of Fairtrade flowers.
This has meant that we’ve given over £1.5m in Fairtrade premium to support flower farm communities in Kenya, Tanzania and Ethiopia. This long term relationship has provided decent employment, workplace benefits and environmental protection to around 15,000 people.
So, if you’re yet to buy your loved one some flowers today, make sure that you choose ones that will not only earn you some brownie points, but will also do some good in communities around the world.
Blatant sales plug:
- Fairtrade single rose (£2.00)
- Fairtrade Sweetheart Roses (£5.00)
- a dozen Fairtrade roses (£10.00)
- Fairtrade mixed roses (£10.00)
…and don’t forget your colleague member discount and 5% + 1% rewards.
