Founded in 1986, Shared Earth is a retailer and wholesaler of fair trade goods. Based in York, with shops in Liverpool and Isle of Wight, they import a large selection of jewellery, homeware, stationery and gifts from all over the world which can be bought in store and online. They also stock a variety of products from other ethical and eco-friendly suppliers including clothing and recycled glassware.
Jeremy regularly travels with other Shared Earth staff to visit overseas producers. “This keeps everyone focused on the same goals; to create ethically sustainable products and check that the money is getting to the people who need it most,” says Jeremy.
