Save Save for Fairtrade with the exciting Fairtrade Saver Account from Triodos Bank. The Fairtrade Foundation has partnered with Triodos Bank – one of the UK’s leading social investment banks to develop the Fairtrade Saver Account and allow you to directly support the work of the Fairtrade Foundation and fair trade businesses through your savings.
How does it work?
Many of us work hard to buy and promote Fairtrade, yet the impact of personal savings and investments is often overlooked. Triodos however are offering a fantastic alternative by guaranteeing to only invest your savings in ethical businesses.
|The Triodos Fairtrade Saver Account is a simple and secure savings account enabling you to directly contribute to the work of the Fairtrade Foundation and provide a healthy return on your money. Money deposited in the account will only be used to support ethical enterprises in the UK, like Cafédirect and Equal Exchange, who pay a fair price to producers in developing countries.|
- By opening a Fairtrade Saver account, Triodos Bank will donate the equivalent of 0.25% of the average balance of funds held in your account each year to the Fairtrade Foundation.
- Additionally you can choose to donate a portion or all of the interest earned on your savings every year – this donation can also be valid for Gift Aid, giving us an additional 28 pence on every pound donated at no extra cost to you!
“The account links organisations like ours, the producers who supply us and UK consumer’s growing appetite for ethical products in a direct, practical way. It has the potential to bring very real benefits to us all.” Phil King - Financial Director, Cafédirect.
