Fair Trade & The Climate Crisis
Welcome to Earthstore
Why we are here?
‘The choices we make are where we make the difference’
‘Our suppliers are at the heart of change’
Shared Earth are one of our first contacts in the beginning. So we will share some of their words from shared earth on fair trade and the climate crisis.
Probably the biggest factor contributing to global warming is the burning of fossil fuels. 80% of the energy we use worldwide is created by the burning of fossil fuels. This produces CO2 gases in huge amounts, trapping heat in the atmosphere and leading to the ‘greenhouse effect’.
It’s well worth a visit to Earthstore Boutique with its huge range of items from gift shopping to revitalising the home and self-care. It’s a place to find something unique and restorative. Enjoy the music and aroma from the array of candles and incense available to sample.
Ness Brigham founded the Earthstore in 2014 as a creative idea after finishing a design degree. From Stockton on tees, the biggest question is why open a shop in Saltburn? why? It’s the place to be if you’re passionate about the environment and ethical trading. Saltburn is a very diverse, creative, bohemian place where you can be who you want to be. A community that cares about its area and brings in people for its outstanding natural beauty and unique friendly vibes.
A Shop with a heart
It’s a shop with a heart. The centre of everything is wellbeing. Earthstore is about better health, less chemicals and protecting our environment.
Then there are people who work for us across the globe for very little. Ness is a buddhist and after a trip to Nepal and India to try to understand the issues behind fair-trade, it became a mission to carry on trying to improve the working lives of the people creating these amazing products. The store is set in the seaside town of Saltburn-by-the-Sea, and can be found just off the high street.
