Nourish London announces fair trade collaboration

Organic and vegan skin care brand Nourish London has announced its collaboration with Freeset; a fair trade business that focuses on creating positive employment opportunities for women affected by sex trafficking in West Bengal, India.

Established nearly 20 years ago in Kolkata, the organisation provides women working in the sex trade with a choice of alternative fairly paid employment of customisable sewn products for sale around the world.

In support of its work, Nourish London has recently commissioned Freeset to create a selection of handmade toiletry bags made from locally sourced organic fabrics that will be used as part of their 2020 seasonal gifting range.

Janet Rogers, Founder and CEO of Via Design and UK Brand Ambassador for Freeset, said: “Freeset are delighted to be working with Nourish London and to be able to produce this first order of sustainable packaging – sharing the same values of sustainability and care for our beautiful planet."

"Its orders from brands like Nourish London which provide ongoing fairly paid work for the team and enable them to provide for themselves and their families," Janet adds. "Knowing they are appreciated and valued, as well as the lovely products the women create, also helps build a flourishing and vibrant global community.”
