Many consumers already know the difficulties involved with identifying ethical produce during the weekly grocery shop, but not as many think about the bags that they carry them home in.

Sweatshop labour is a widely-known issue, but because of its prevalence in the media, many people have become less complacent about the issue of poor working conditions and employee rights. Westford Mill is passionate about providing a Fairtrade option for shoppers using sustainable bags for life, which is why it has introduced the Fairtrade Cotton Camden Shopper (W671).

This 100% cotton canvas carrier is Fairtrade certified, so shoppers who use it can be certain that it was produced in fair and reasonable conditions without any worker being exploited. The bag is also highly practical, with a capacity of 13 litres and 58cm handles that can be carried either by hand or over the shoulder.

Decorators who choose to brand this bag with their logo can be certain that they’re endorsing an ethical product, which will in turn help to boost their own company profile as a fair trader. The W671 makes an ideal canvas for graphics and comes in timeless black or a natural cream finish.
