Tribes & Nations Fair Trade Store

Bringing Fairtrade coffee and tea to your kitchen, ethical gifts for your weddings and homewares of just provenance to your door!

Through this we hope to enable and support your Ethical and Just Life Style, while being a vocie for the poor through fair trade.

We are family business that was established in 2004. This came about after living in Tanzania for 5 years, with our then two small boys. It changed  our  thinking and style of living.

 We see poverty not just as a lack of income, but also a lack of choice and access to resources. Poverty also shows itself as lack of self-value (prostitution), promiscuity (HIV) and physical abuse (slavery). 

We also saw how a small change, such as paying a fair wage can bring about a big change to a person’s life.

It was Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. who said “before you finish eating breakfast in the morning, you’ve depended on more than half the world”. With that he reminded us that our much individualised western lives are still intimately connected with the people in our global village.

Our online fair trade store offers

  • a range of ethically sourced products
  • products of beauty and practicality,
  • friendly and efficient service, 
  • the 'T&N guarantee' of a FULL REFUND should your product be faulty in any way

Wherever possible our preference is for materials that rank high in sustainability -

We believe in Fair Trade, where people come before profit, where equality and fairness are a standard, all the while caring for the our one and only God given earth, and living as his disciple.

Tribes and Nations Speciality - Heart Call

If you would like to take things further we are here to enable you with this too. This is core to our hearts and our family business. We see this section as the 'seed sower' section, where we give you the seeds of change to sow far and wide, and you never know the good and love it brings, BUT you do know

“Every action in our lives touches some chord that will vibrate in eternity “Edwin Hubbell Chapin

We have a range of kits that are easy to use and come  with information that can explain the benefits of fair trade in simple and straightforward language.

Kits like -

  • Seed Sower Consignment  to take fair trade products to your home, church or work
  • Winter Warmer promotion pack of coffee,  tea and information
  • Resource pages full of fair trade and poverty information
  • Starter Pack with a compact range of consumables and great information

 

In all we welcome your questions, comments and suggestions as we walk together on this road of caring for the poor through fair trade.

It's time ...

It’s time for a new year…

New beginnings, the old has gone!

It’s time to see life through new eyes,

Reframe the old, new perspectives,

New hope, new dreams…

To set achievable standards,

To give from a place of plenty

To  flourish, thrive and be at peace

Happy 2017 to You!
