Vested Interest Trading
Vested Interest Trading is a Fair Trade Business
Vested Interest Trading sources its products ethically 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.
Exports of products such as jewelry and textiles to Western countries, which once provided a decent living for people, are now being made in China and exported at a lower price. 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. Fair Trade is a movement that focuses on products that are usually exported from developing countries to developed nations.
Why is Fair Trade important in Bali?
