Proudly a Fairtrade Certified Company
With Fairtrade we have the power to change the world every day. With simple shopping choices, you give farmers a better deal. And that means they can make their own decisions, control their futures and lead the dignified life that everyone deserves. Fairtrade also promotes sustainable farming practices.
We believe in an economy based on fair trade and sustainability. Our producers (cotton farmers) and our cotton bedding manufacturer are both certified Fairtrade. At Sleep Organic we also have our own Fairtrade certification. That means we pay what is called a Fairtrade Premium - an amount over and above the Fairtrade price that is used by the farmers themselves to improve their local economic, social and environmental conditions. As we are also GOTS-certified organic our Fairtrade farmers receive a still higher Fairtrade price that they would otherwise.
Education & Awareness
We support our regional community by partnering with local schools. For every purchase made by the community, we donate 5% to their school. We are in the process of approaching other sustainability-orientated organisations to create similar working alliances.
