Vested Interest Trading
Vested Interest Trading is a Fair Trade Business
Vested Interest Trading ethically sources its products and uses Fair Trade practices.
With mass manufacturing higher than ever, the incredibly high costs of exporting goods from Indonesia are making it harder and harder for local artisans to sustain themselves.
Exports of products such as jewelry and textiles to Western countries, which once provided a decent living for people, are now being made in China and exported at a lower price. Because of this, the livelihood, quality of life, and preservation of the Balinese culture are supported by Vested Interest Trading.
Fair Trade is a social movement that empowers producers in developing countries to have better working and trading conditions. Fair Trade promotes sustainable farming and improves social and environmental standards at work. The Fair Trade movement focuses on products that are typically exported from developing countries to developed countries.
