Product of Sri Lanka
These Jar Seal Rings are the first in the world to be made from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified Latex, i.e. the natural rubber is sourced from a responsibly managed plantation. Furthermore, the rubber tappers, who cut the bark to get the raw material flowing, have received a Fairtrade premium, & it is their decision how they spend their extra income.
Pension Fund: Rubber plantation workers in India are entitled to a pension but increasingly the state pension is not enough to cover the rise in living costs, so rubber tappers can face a difficult retirement. Now however thanks to the Fairtrade premium paid all 185 workers on The New Ambadi estate will receive a RS 1000 bonus on retirement to supplement the state pension. They will then receive a further 1000 RS every year for 10 years plus any accumulation interest from the pension fund. This small extra income may not seem like a great deal to us but it is enough to pay for visits to children or for those little extras which can make retirement that bit easier. On The New Ambadi estate Mr K. Babu (59 years old) will be the first person to retire & benefit form this 1000 RS bonus. Mr Babu is a deserving recipient of a retirement bonus. He has worked his whole life as a rubber tapper which has affected his health, not least from rising every morning at 4am. Mr Babu's wife also works on the plantation & will also receive the RS 1000 bonus when she retires.
Warning: Natural Rubber Protein can cause an allergic reaction.
