Aid Through Trade constantly strives for Sustainability
Aid Through Trade™ practices sustainability in all aspects of our business. We make decisions for the future not only of our business, but also the future welfare of our artisans abroad. We also believe that human actions affect the environment and consequently take proactive measures to limit our environmental footprint.
We all make a collective effort to be environmentally aware and responsible, including working towards a 100% carbon neutral office environment. This involves using electricity generated from wind farms, using recycled paper exclusively and sparingly, and the implementing of an intelligent IT power strategy. We also use low wattage fluorescent lighting and turn off all air conditioning when our offices are unoccupied.
Aid Through Trade™ also works to make sure that our organization will be here into the future to continue our relationship with our wholesale clients, as well as provide a reliable living wage and healthy working environment for our artisans abroad. Having survived as a small business since 1993 with continued growth is testament to these efforts and we plan on many more to come!
