Principle Nine:  Promoting Fair Trade

The organisation raises awareness of the aim of Fair Trade and of the need for greater justice in world trade through Fair Trade. It advocates for the objectives and activities of Fair Trade according to the scope of the organisation.

The organisation provides its customers with information about itself, the products it markets, and the producer organisations or members that make or harvest the products. Honest advertising and marketing techniques are always used.

Principle Nine: Promoting Fair Trade
  • All Selyn showrooms and factories will be closed until further notice due to the current public health emergency. We kindly urge you to stay indoors and help prevent this virus from further spreading. 
The only thing we can do to help our country fight this virus is to stay indoors and practice social distancing. Please do your bit. #Stayathome

  • Another International Women's Day celebrating empowering ladies of Selyn. We couldn't be more proud. #IWD2020 #eachforequal
  • In a society where women are expected to become stay at home moms from the day they get married, Selyn along with fair trade principles introduced a work culture that helps women achieve their true potential as working mothers. While challenging gender-based inequalities, Selyn started its journey nearly 30 years ago to provide women employment that empowers them. Not only fair and equal pay with good working conditions, but Selyn employees are also provided with in-house daycare facilities so that mothers do not have to give up their careers after childbirth. Something all Sri Lankan employers to think about this International Women’s Day. #EachForEqual #IWD2020
  • International Women’s day is right around the corner, and we can not wait to celebrate our wonderful Selyn sisters and what we stand for. This year, with women around the world, we are celebrating the International Women’s Day with the message #EachForEqual, to create a gender-equal world for us and the future. Follow us and stay tuned to learn more about how Selyn challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women's achievements as a fair trade company in a tiny little island in Asia. #iwd2020
