Hello and Assalaam Alaikum dear friends and fairtrade supporters, thank you for stopping by this page.

My visit to Traidcraft
I recently visited Alistair Menzies at Traidcraft's head office, Gateshead, UK and was invited to provide input for a video the Traidcraft team is producing for FairtradeUAE.

This was my second visit to Traidcraft and I was overwhelmed by the teams support. Strangers who I had never met were interested to support fairtrade in my part of the world. Although, time was limited, the meeting was constructive and on my way home I felt a renewed release of energy and determination.

It's always uplifting to be supported by such fairtrade organisations and pioneers.
I will keep you updated with the video and post it below once it has been completed, fingers crossed.

Warmest regards and keep supporting fairtrade wherever you are!

Sabeena :)

Odylique Product Review, Videos and Photoshoot

Last year I had a couple of lovely online conversations with Abi Weeds Managing Director and Emma Hopewell of Odylique - Essential (Organics) Ltd.
