'Citrus' Etsy List curated by H is for Home

Citrus conjures up strong feelings; it ambushes all the senses. The scent is fresh and reviving. The taste zings on the tongue and the palate. The greens, yellows and ahem… oranges are eye-catching, vibrant and bright. Citrus is invigorating, uplifting, mood-enhancing and health-giving.

selection of 5 fairtrade homewares

We’re coming to the end of Fairtrade Fortnight and we wanted to mark it in our own little way.

When we think of Fairtrade most of us think of the coffee, tea, sugar etc  with the green & blue Fairtrade logo that we see in the supermarket. But it’s much more far-reaching than that. Flowers, wine, cosmetics, clothing, gold… even homewares! Here are some of the ones that caught our eye…

  1. Striped jute storage bags (set of 2): £22, Traidcraft

  3. Sheesham wood side table – grey: £57, Ethical Superstore
  4. Oka film light: £200, Nkuku
  5. Recycled grow bag: £14.99, Notonthehighstreet

Here’s a short film of one tea farmer’s experience of fairtrade…

Comprising kitchen apron & oven glove, there’ll certainly be no groovier attired rival vying for the title. It dates from the 1960s/70s and comes unused in the original packaging.
