Whole Trade Roses

Sweet Pea loves fair trade roses!! Besides being beautiful they are responsible.  I source mine from Whole Foods Market,  WFM has been so nice as to travel all the way out to Quito, Ecuador and set up this arrangement with local farmers.

Whole Trade Guarantee promises that every product meets the following criteria:
  • Meets Whole Food's high quality standards
  • Provides more money to producers
  • Ensures better wages and working conditions for workers
  • Cares for the environment
 "Workers’ committees are using the premium to provide dental, medical and pediatric care, nutritional programs, literacy programs…the list goes on. Improved housing was a key project for every committee that we met."
 Please  request these roses from us for your wedding if this kind of thing floats your boat and read more about it on the WFM blog  They are more expensive but its only fair :)
