We’re talking about the UN Sustainable Development Goals No Poverty?
Haven’t heard of it? Well, you are indeed missing out then!
The UN goals of sustainable development are a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
What this actually means is that the UN has provided guidance to both businesses and individuals on how they can help influence a world that helps everyone, not just a few.
When we found out about the UN sustainable development goals, we were delighted.
This is because we had previously focused all of our attention on sustainability – it’s at the core of our business. This has meant that we have already been able to achieve certification by Ethical Consumer Magazine as a Best Buy Brand.
However, what we like about the UN sustainable development goals is that it gives us all guidance on how we can all improve.
We know that there is so much more to do in this world to achieve equality for all and to protect our beautiful planet.
That’s why we have decided to hold cut.le.crap. accountable the U.N.’s sustainable development goals.
First up: No Poverty.
Did you know that 10% of the world’s population lives in extreme poverty? And 50% of those living in poverty are under the age of 18?
Numbers have improved dramatically in the last few years but this is terrible and we need to address this issue.
So, the UN is asking everyone to see how they can help end poverty in all its forms, everywhere.
What is cut.le.crap currently doing?
Raw materials imported from developing countries are guaranteed by our suppliers to be sourced ethically.
However, we require greater transparency so we have made it our goal to purchase raw materials directly from the farmers or local co-operatives and ensure that income is distributed fairly.
Ending poverty is also all about helping people out of poverty.
