Fair Trade

June 02, 2015

One of the most important values to us is to insure that in whatever trade we do, it should be within the lines of fair trade, We believe in empowering our stakeholders and we strongly believe in delivering products which do not involve child labor and we partner with only those suppliers who are transparent enough that their manufacturing does not involve any unfair trade practices.
Here we enlighten you with, why as a brand we strongly believe in this.

 

What is Fair Trade?

"Fair Trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect that seeks greater equity in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers and workers

Fair Trade is more than just trading:
· It proves that greater justice in world trade is possible.
· It highlights the need for change in the rules and practice of conventional trade and shows how a successful business can also put people first.
· It is a tangible contribution to the fight against poverty, climate change and economic crisis.

Why you should buy fair trade shoes?

When you decide to purchase fair trade products including shoes, you are supporting the manufacturers and the original producers of the materials that were used to make the shoes. Unlike other shoes, fair trade companies assist in the development of the local communities and their suppliers by paying a fair wage and investing in local projects and provides Fair Trade working conditions and environments for the workers.

Fair Trade Working Conditions

The products are about making decent working conditions, better prices, better terms of trade and local sustainability for workers and farmers in the third (developing) world that are manufacturing according to the fair trade act. By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices for their goods, buying fair trade addresses some of the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally hurts the poorest, weakest shoe producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives.

*The Brazilian sizes are already converted in the Portuguese version of the website.

*Our ballerinas fit the foot comfortably. Mojaris, however, are a type of shoe which are naturally a little tighter, as they adjust to the foot upon wearing.

*This chart may vary a little from other charts, as there is no international standard for shoe sizes.

*In case you still have any doubts regarding your size, send us an email at info@iamhappee.com, we will revert back ASAP. :)
