Fair Trade has become a buzz word for many businesses. Companies can now be certified to 'prove' their Fair Trade principles.
Our view is that Fair Trade is something more fundamental. Fair Trade is an open and mutual agreement between people. Furthermore, being fair can take many forms. Wan Ling Tea House believes that being fair should be as much about how we each deal with one another and our impact on the wider environment, whether that be nature or communities.
As part of our beliefs, we aim to share a little with a number of different projects either directly as an organisation or as individuals.
Some of the projects we support include global organisations and local schemes. Although we are only small, hopefully this support brings some real benefit beyond the fair trading of our teas with tea farmers and artisans.
Current and past projects and charities;
