This week Clare Florist is proud to launch its first Fairtrade product - Fairtrade Roses which are certified by the Fairtrade Foundation.

The Fairtrade mark ensures that the providing flower farms meet the basic labour and environmental standards, eliminating forced and child labour as well as ensuring workers are given fair wages, working conditions that comply with health and safety standards, while promoting freedom of association and collective bargaining. Fairtrade certified farms are also committed to resolve housing issues and encourage workers to join trade unions such that they are better represented.
The new Fairtrade Roses not only promise a better deal for the growers working on flower farms in Kenya, but will also enable customers to improve the quality of the lives of workers by supporting community, environmental and economic development projects through the Fairtrade premium that is included as part of the Fairtrade pricing scheme.
The sales of Fairtrade roses have already led to a range of implemented projects including development of education facilities, purchase of equipment and furniture as well as drilling holes for water supplies in local villages. Clare Florist are keen to support Fairtrade and ensure that the quality of lives on the flower farms be continually improved, whilst acknowledging our customers' demand for buying flowers ethically and enabling customers to help the developing world gain a better future through Fairtrade Rose purchases.
