Fair trade floor
Let me write this in English. The reason being that I want Bruce D. Uhler to be able to read and understand. He visited the Annual General Meeting of Världsbutiken i Kalmar earlier this evening and informed us about a new product: floor produced from Fair Trade timber from Chile. It is a product which is both Fair Trade and FSC certified. FSC is an abbreviation for Forest Stewardship Council. In Världsbutiken we sell food and handicraft. It fills me with hope that Fair Trade is becoming interesting for bigger companies like Kährs. One can read more on the Fair Trade blog. Also on the Svenska FSC website. We also felt chosen to host the second presentation of this product in Sweden. The first was at the Embassy of Chile. I really hope other manufacturers of wood product to follow.
