Update 08/12/2010: Free Prize Draw extended. Sign up for occasional email news from Organikal and you’ll be entered into the draw to win a free pair of ETHLETIC organic cotton sneakers from Fair Deal Trading
Weather for wellies? I think so! This was the scene for my afternoon walk yesterday. I’m so lucky to have this countryside not 100 metres from my door – especially when the snow hits and it’s just not practicable to venture out in the car.
I’ve been on a campaign for a couple of years for a pair of wellies, so I can enjoy this walk in all weathers. I’ve been thwarted at every turn and so I was truly delighted to hear from James at Fair Deal Trading that his company had just launched these Greentips FSC certified Fair Trade wellington boots.
A perfect solution for my wellington boot search!
Discount for Organikal Readers
Even better news, James is extending a massive 15% discount to all Organikal readers (Enter code organikal01 at checkout).
Before sending off my order, I had a couple of questions for James;
Julie: Wellies are becoming quite a fashion staple – not just for farmers and festival goers any longer, even city girls are donning a pair to combat the drizzle. Can you tell me a little about what your fair trade wellies have to offer?
James: Our wellies are certainly very original, their fresh bright green colour balances nicely with the dark blue soles and because they made from 100% natural rubber they are much softer and more comfortable to wear than your average wellie boots, they look and feel great to wear. Also, because Greentips wellies are eco certified by the FSC and fairly traded they can be worn with pride.
Julie: Your website sells everything from fair trade condoms to sports equipment – has the financial downturn affected demand for your products in any way?
James: It has been a hard couple of years for us but most of our products are still competitive in price with the regular brands. For example our organic and Fairtrade certified ETHLTIC footwear despite being covered by three fair trade projects still retails for under £50.00 so shoppers can still choose our brands without spending too much. I think Fairtrade and organic products are here to stay an if we can weather the current storm we will come out even stronger.
Extended Discount Applies
Isn’t it great to see an ethical alternative to big brands – for everyday products and footwear? You may remember we invested in some fair trade flip flops and organic Ethletic sneakers earlier this year. That’s why I’ve no hesitation placing an order for my wellingtons.
James’ generous discount will apply across all products – including flip flops and Ethletic sneakers. A great, ethical Christmas present for you and the family, don’t you think? Check out the full range on offer at Fair Deal Trading.
