We are so excited to launch our jewellery recycling initiative with our EB Community, in partnership with Traidcraft Exchange.
We’re on a mission to fight both poverty and waste and, with your support, it couldn’t be easier!
Through our partnership with Traidcraft Exchange you can give your unworn jewellery a new lease of life and your forgotten items can be worn elsewhere. Read on to find out how you can recycle old items and support a better tomorrow with EB.
Who are Traidcraft Exchange?
Traidcraft Exchange is the UK’s leading fair trade organisation, aiming to fight poverty in developing countries through trade.
Their vision is simple; ‘a world without poverty, where all trade is fair.’
Through a combination of ongoing development programmes that supports and empowers vulnerable businesses, extensive campaigning and lobbying as well as the production of their own fair trade products Traidcraft Exchange is challenging injustice in the trading industry one step at a time.
‘Through our work, people come together to sharpen their skills, grow their networks, and have their voices heard in the corridors of power.’
EB x Traidcraft
We strongly believe in Traidcraft Exchange’s message of equality, empowerment and sustainability which is why we’ve chosen to team up with them.
With your help, we’ll be supporting Traidcraft Exchange’s jewellery recycling scheme which breathes new life into your old, broken or unwanted jewellery whilst helping raise vital funds for fair trade development in Africa and South Asia.
What’s more, you’ll be helping to save precious raw materials and reducing waste at the same time meaning you’re protecting our planet.
