The rubber for these medium sized gloves is produced by small-scale farmers with the Dipped Product's Firstlight programme in Sri Lanka. The natural rubber used to make these gloves is harvested by farmers who tap the trees in the early morning to get the best yields. By selling through Firstlight, the farmers know they will receive regular and fair payments as well as technical support and help with equipment. Traidcraft is working with Firstlight to ensure that the impact reaches much further than this since the price paid also includes development premium. This means that the benefit of fair trade can be felt by farmers and their communities. Your purchase will help Traidcraft to:
Invest in producers so they can grow their businesses.
Give small-scale farmers access to new markets.
Develop new fair trade products.
Fight against unfair trade deals.
