Supplier of the month
Fair Squared is an Anglo-German that produces high quality bath and bedroom products that are made from fair trade and organic ingredients and come in well designed packaging. Palestinian olive oil is the main ingredient for their entire skin care range and is supplied by farmers cooperatives in the West Bank. Olive oil in cosmetics is a major boost to increasing the farmers revenue streams as they are then not reliant on the “extra virgin” label only. The latex (for their condoms) comes from FSC-certified rubber plantations. They are Vegan Society registered and are working on making all Fair Squared products vegan
Hadeel is a Fair Trade shop which aims to provide a sustainable source of income for craftspeople working with social enterprises in the West Bank, Gaza, Lebanon, as well as one in the Galilee and another in the Negev. Their work also helps to sustain infrastructures, as many of the producer groups also provide health, education and emergency services in their communities which lack any form of local government which might do this. Hadeel is owned by the Scottish charity Palcrafts. Any surplus made on the sale of goods is gift aided to Palcrafts which distributes small development grants to the producers. Hadeel is a member of the British Association for Fair Trade Shops and is a sister shop to Sunbula which is at St. Andrew's Church, Jerusalem. Palestinian handcrafts have always been living examples of ethnic art deeply rooted in Palestinian folklore; they have now become a symbol of the people and their striving for a normal way of life with a national identity, in the face of the Israeli occupation of their land. Making beautiful crafts also helps people psychologically to survive during long hours and days when they are not permitted to travel because of Israeli-imposed barriers and restrictions.
