Mary & Martha are celebrating World Fair Trade Day over 3 days - so that no one will miss the opportunity.
This year the focus is "Strengthening Fair Trade Relationships with the 10 Principles of Fair Trade.
The International Women's Association of Mongolia do great work supporting those in need through their projects. As a thank you for all the trade they give to Mary and Martha, we are donating 5% of our sales income over 10, 11, 12 May. We are hoping for bumper sales in Ulaanbaatar.
So funds to projects; but what about the customers. We don't give discounts as our margins are about paying our Artisans a living wage. However, we are running a free prize draw - for every MNT 20,000 spent, a customer receives one Free Draw ticket. Prizes are from our product range.
We're using WFTD as an opportunity to introduce many new products - especially felt products for I-Pads, Tablets and E-Readers; some new embroidered products and other surprises.
