GO ETHICAL THIS YEAR
TAKE an ethical stance when looking for gifts this Christmas.
With Australian shoppers expected to spend more than $46 billion this Christmas, Oxfam Australia want locals to consider buying ethical gifts, allowing artisans to be paid fair wages for their products.
One of the newest collections is Purple House, hailing from Alice Springs, which helps the Pintupi-Luritja people from the Western Desert receive treatment for kidney disease.
Oxfam Australia trading general manager Julia Sumner said the new gift sets from Purple House were just one of Oxfam’s 138 fair and ethical producer partners from 39 countries around the world.
“Containing irmangka irmangka body lotion, lemongrass lip balm, arrethe bush balm and irmangka soap, these products are not only good for your skin, they’re good for the communities in which they are made,” she said.
The Oxfam Shop is on Queen Street, Fremantle.
