Ad feature: Fairtrade Labelwise campaign all about sustainable products

Fairtrade South Africa, Fair Trade Tourism (FTT), Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) have joined forces to create a public awareness campaign about sustainable products.

Jonathon Cherry, Director for CherryFlava Media, says it is becoming evident that more and more businesses are cutting corner in order to maximise profit and it important for people to understand how the cutting of corners really affects society.

The aim of the Labelwise campaign is to create consciousness about products, says Cherry.

They are trying to create an awareness on, for example, the toilet paper that you buy is it FSC certified, has it been accredited by people who look at the sustainability of the source of materials used.
