Vested Interest Trading
Vested Interest Trading is a Fair Trade Business
Vested Interest Trading ethically sources its products and uses Fair Trade practices.
With mass manufacturing higher than ever, the incredibly high costs of exporting goods from Indonesia are making it harder and harder for local artisans to sustain themselves.
Products like jewelry and textiles being exported to Western countries that once provided a good living for people are now being made and exported cheaper in China. Because of this, the livelihood, quality of life, and preservation of the Balinese culture are supported by Vested Interest Trading.
Fair Trade is a global social movement that enables producers in developing countries to achieve better working and trading conditions. This is done by improving social and environmental standards in the workplace as well as promoting sustainable farming. The Fair Trade movement focuses on products that are typically exported from developing countries to developed countries.
Why is Fair Trade important for Bali?
The key objective of Fair Trade, especially in Bali, is to empower and support Balinese artisans and farmers. Fair Trade’s rules guarantee a living wage, offering employees opportunity for advancement and assistance in a safe working environment, engaging in environmentally sustainable practices, being open to public accountability, and building long-term trade relationships between Indonesia and the rest of the world.
Fair Trade vendors are the best.
You are supporting the creation of opportunities for economically disadvantaged producers. Fair Trade is a non-profit organization that promotes poverty alleviation, sustainable growth, and development for local people.
You are supporting the ongoing efforts for gender equity and equal opportunity. Fair Trade vendors place a lot of emphasis on ensuring that women’s efforts are as well valued and rewarded than those of men.
You help to support the elimination of the exploitation of children and Indigenous people. Fair Trade companies always create safe and healthy working conditions for their employees.
In purchasing Fair Trade products, you are a part of an exchange that acts from a place of deep reverence and respect for ancient cultural traditions and natural resources. The Fair Trade organization helps producers to hone their local knowledge base so that they can preserve their cultural identity.
You engage in payment of a fair price. This is determined through dialogue and participation from local business owners. It will cover the production costs, but also allow artisans to participate in a production process that is both environmentally and socially responsible.
Fair Trader vendors are also able to ensure prompt payment to their partners and, whenever possible, help producers obtain access to pre-production financing.
You support the preservation and use of the land for future generations. Fair Trade vendors are educated on how to manage and use their local resources sustainably. Vendors are very close to their producers. Whenever possible they choose regions of high biodiversity so that they can develop products that do not harm the land, but rather enhance it.
You contribute to a global conversation & revolution of equal opportunity. Fair Trade practices are ultimately in place to facilitate a cross-cultural understanding and respect between consumers and the communities of the developing world.
