“Clean home, clean consience.”
That's the Fair Trade Cleaning way.
Fair Trade typically is a business principle whereby “products are imported and/or distributed by organizations who have Fair Trade at the core of their mission and activities (commonly referred to as alternative trading organizations), using it as a development tool to support disadvantaged producers and to reduce poverty.” (Wikipedia) This usually applies to handicrafts, coffee, cocoa, sugar, tea, bananas, honey, cotton, wine, fresh fruit and flowers. In other words, people in developing nations are paid fairly for products that they make or grow and harvest.
But what about service industries? When you spend $3.00 for that cup of Fair Trade coffee in a coffee shop here in Canada, how much is the person behind the counter earning? Is it something close to minimum wage? Is that still fair trade?
Fair Trade Cleaning
Basic cleaning involves a thorough dusting and vacuuming of the furniture in the living room, dining room, halls, and bedrooms, including picture frames, lampshades and baseboards as well as cleaning the woodwork.
In the kitchens we clean and disinfect the counter tops and sinks, and wipe down the outsides of the major appliances and clean the inside of your microwave. Then we sweep and wash you floors. We also spot clean any finger prints throughout the house or apartment.
In the bathroom we thoroughly clean and disinfect all the fixtures and polish the taps and mirrors. We get the soap scum off the shower surround and door and then sweep and wash the floor.
