Martin Kunz, Executive Secretary of the Fair Rubber Association and member of FSC says,

“The biggest ongoing challenge of the Fair Rubber Association (FRA) is to find new products made from rubber that are eligible to be included in the fair trade scheme and carry the logo. While rubber is almost everywhere in our daily lives, most of its uses are hidden. For example, there are up to 200 rubber parts in a car - try naming just 10! There is however one easy way to show your support for fairly traded rubber and demonstrate your commitment to FSC at the same time: fairly traded FSC-certified balloons by Fair Trade Center.”

Fairly traded FSC-certified balloons with your brand can be a fun marketing tool that can be used in displays at fairs, as promotional giveaways, or for any celebration in your company. The minimum order is 10,000 pieces and there are eight great colours to choose from! You can have single or double-sided printing, with 90 days lead time, delivered straight to your address. Cost: less than 10 pence per balloon which includes the fair trade premium. Interested? Visit:
