This is great increase for fairtrade produce and also great to see that consumers are becoming increasingly aware of where and how products are made. Biome Lifestyle is constantly increasing our range of Fairly traded products, working with a growing number of suppliers abroad who adhere to the fair trade principles of fair wages and a good working environment.
During the current economic downturn there also appears to be a definite trend towards consumers looking for less ‘mass produced’ and disposable products and turning to more unique and good quality items, which will last years to come instead.
I am a firm believer that quality should override quantity; that classic LBD or handmade piece of furniture is sure to last longer in terms of style, quality and durability.
Disposable fashion can be fun and we can all be tempted at times! However, it’s always important to consider where the item was made, who by and how… So next time you are about to buy this weeks ‘must have’ fad, think about how long you really intend to use it or keep it for, then perhaps save your pennies for something you know will be an investment piece and not next weeks rubbish!
