Fair-trade School Uniforms – worth a little extra?

Buying school clothes for your kids might not be your idea of fun. Trying to find something that will last for as long as possible while also cope with general wear and tear from your kids running around the playground can be a thankless task at the best of times. Buying clothes for school might not be your number one priority now but a little preparation won’t hurt!

When buying school clothes, you may wonder what to get and where. The same pair of slacks, shirts and tie might seem good, but perhaps the kids might want something a little different. If you could buy durable school clothes that also helped to make you feel a little better inside, would you consider it?

Fair-trade – the ethical choice

In recent years, there has been huge demand for fair-trade products of all kind. Food, drink, perfume and even flowers can be bought that come with certification, and it seems that clothes are next on the list. The Fairtrade Foundation website shows how fair-trade school uniforms could soon become widely available for the ethical family who want to do a little good.

Anyone who has considered buying fair-trade goods before will have probably baulked at the price before wondering whether or not to part with their money. However, by searching online for a school uniform shop, you might be able to get them for the same price as ordinary school clothes, or perhaps for even less than usual, but how?

Surfing for a bargain

By helping out cotton farmers in India and West Africa, having new fair-trade clothes will ensure that your kids will be dressed smartly for the new school year. Meanwhile, you could have clothes that will last for a long time or at least until your kids outgrow them!

Looking for netvouchercodes online, you could find it’s possible to save a little without having to compromise on helping out disadvantaged farmers. In many ways, buying fair-trade clothes online give you the best of both worlds, as you’re doing a good thing while buying great-value clothes for your kids.

    I would prefer my kids to go to a school that required uniforms. I think too many kids worry about wearing brand name clothing nowadays.
