Fair Trade Overview
Fair Trade Certification empowers farmers and farm workers to lift themselves out of poverty by investing in their farms and communities, protecting the environment, and developing the business skills necessary to compete in the global marketplace. Fair Trade is much more than a fair price!
Fair Trade principles include:
Fair price: Democratically organized farmer groups receive a guaranteed minimum floor price and an additional premium for certified organic products. Farmer organizations are also eligible for pre-harvest credit.
Fair labor conditions: Workers on Fair Trade farms enjoy freedom of association, safe working conditions, and living wages. Forced child labor is strictly prohibited.
Direct trade: With Fair Trade, importers purchase from Fair Trade producer groups as directly as possible, eliminating unnecessary middlemen and empowering farmers to develop the business capacity necessary to compete in the global marketplace.
Democratic and transparent organizations: Fair Trade farmers and farm workers decide democratically how to invest Fair Trade revenues.
Community development: Fair Trade farmers and farm workers invest Fair Trade premiums in social and business development projects like scholarship programs, quality improvement trainings, and organic certification.
Environmental sustainability: Harmful agrochemicals and GMOs are strictly prohibited in favor of environmentally sustainable farming methods that protect farmers' health and preserve valuable ecosystems for future generations. TransFair USA, a non-profit organization, is the only independent, third-party certifier of Fair Trade products in the U.S. and one of 20 members of Fairtrade Labelling Organizations International (FLO). TransFair's rigorous audit system, which tracks products from farm to finished product, verifies industry compliance with Fair Trade criteria. TransFair allows U.S. companies to display the Fair Trade Certified label on products that meet strict Fair Trade standards.
Fair Trade Certification is currently available in the U.S. for coffee, tea and herbs, cocoa and chocolate, fresh fruit, sugar, rice, and vanilla.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do your products contain parabens?
No, Organic Fiji is dedicated to bringing you the cleanest skin care available. None of their products contain Parabens, PEG’s, GMO’s, or any other harsh ingredients. Their products are also all gluten free, vegan, and made with USDA and OTCO certified organic coconut oil.
Why does coconut oil solidify? What is the best way to liquefy the oil?
Certified Organic Virgin Coconut Oil naturally solidifies below 76 degrees Fahrenheit. The best methods to liquefy the oil are to place the sealed container in hot water or in a naturally warm environment such as the sun. Please do not microwave the coconut oil, as you will destroy the natural properties of coconut oil by doing so.
I have sensitive skin can I still use the products?
Yes, Organic Fiji's products contain no harsh ingredients and are great for sensitive skin. If your skin is sensitive to fragrance, then they suggest their Fragrance Free Line of products.
Can you use the scrub on your face?
The Sugar Polish is gentle enough to use on the face, as well as any part of the body. The Coral Sea Salt is a bit more abrasive so using it on the face might be too rough for some people.
Will the coconut oil stain my clothes?
No, the Certified Organic Coconut Oil will wash out of clothes and sheets. Thus, this oil makes a perfect fit for massage, tanning, and use as a daily moisturizer.
The Coconut Oil products state that they can be used on hair too. How do I do a hair treatment with the oil?
Apply liberally to dampened hair, leave in for any desired length, and shampoo out. This is an inexpensive oil treatment that will leave your hair soft, conditioned, and protected from environmental factors.
Are Organic Fiji products suitable for problem skin?
Their products contain no harsh ingredients so they are perfect products for acne, eczema, and other skin problems. Coconut oil is natural pore decongestant and will not clog the pores. They use several essential oils such as Tea Tree Spearmint and Lavender that have been shown to reduce acne and eczema.
About Organic Fiji
Today Organic Fiji still offers this innovative selection of products and is always working to enhance their performance. New fragrances have been added to many of the categories, making the choice of scents even larger. Organic Fiji are always keeping up to date with new organic information, and remains dedicated to keeping the products as pure and organic as possible. USDA and Oregon Tilth continue to certify many of their products as Organic.
Organic Fiji products are now made in the USA. After production quality decreased in Fiji and the question of their carbon footprint when shipping the products back and forth was questioned, it was decided that they would use the same ingredients and age old methods to create the products, but somewhere a little closer to home. Organic Fiji felt this was the best environmental choice, which would then directly advantage their customers. They continue to use the coconuts from the pacific islands, supporting the people of these island communities. Organic Fiji takes pride in the quality of its products and will always remain devoted to producing consistently high quality results.
As a company Organic Fiji will always try to operate with the same enveloping warmth that was witnessed in Fiji when this tale began. The company has developed in many ways, but they remain in awe of the islanders' way of life and promise to integrate their magic to the products in every way possible. They value each and every customer regardless of whether they are a big company or a single person. They continue to be human beings at the other end of the phone, rather than an automatic service, and in more ways than just this, they guarantee you can always be greeted with their small company ethics and sincerity.
