Welcome to Creamjug

Spring Green Globe

"Pouring on the good stuff"

OK, so we don’t promote cream (but I do still like it...) 
The reason for the name, is that despite this big bad world and some of the things that it throws at us, we want to show and highlight just some of the nice stuff that is still out there. It always will be there, but it is sometimes just a case of finding it.


We want to introduce some of the finest independent craftsmen and women, and ethical companies / employers, who are producing a wide variety of clothing, food and drink, jewellery, gifts, toys, arts and crafts from across the globe. 

We feature cruelty free, vegan, cosmetics and skin care. Health, nutrition, wellness and organic, additive free, healthy food, drink and snacks, from artisans and companies who work closely with ingredients suppliers and crop growers from around the world on a sustainable fair trade basis. 

We try to list clothing and fashion producers, who wherever possible are using ethical, organic cotton and other sustainable materials, sourced close to the place of manufacture, using established traditional skills that will support the economies of local communities.

We also want to introduce the growing list of employers / companies from across the world who are doing the right thing in respecting their workforce, which means humane working conditions, no long hours and fair pay. We like to find factories who are truly compliant ethical employers, producing quality fashionable clothing, and other products, in many of the under-privileged countries, where the very term "sweat shop" was first born and where it must now end.

Nobody should ever knowingly accept the misuse and exploitation of people in or out of the workplace.

Media and information technology and knowledge will surely help to make a huge difference. 

 



Two of our favourite organisations - To help to protect people and animals...


FAIRTRADE

We also look to feature on this site, manufacturers and other partners within the supply chain who promote and hold certification for Fair Trade Manufacture under the various different countries organisations within the World Fair Trade Organisation

The Fairtrade program actively helps to alleviate poverty by guaranteeing improved prices, and fair terms and working conditions for farmers and workers.

Fairtrade supports the development of farming / worker communities, giving them more control over their own future, protecting the environment in which they live and work

In the UK this operates under the 
FairTrade Foundation

 


Cruelty Free International

cruelty free international logoCruelty Free International works to end animal experiments worldwide. They do this by investigating and exposing the reality of life for animals in laboratories. They challenge decision-makers to make a positive difference for animals. And they champion better science and cruelty free living.

When we see a product label or a reference to "not tested on animals" or "animal friendly", we need to be looking out for the Cruelty free International logo or the leaping bunny

Many Vegans are also supporters of this organization. It may be necessary to study and observe the edicts of both if you wish to fully achieve your animal friendly goals.
