I want to know anything about Zipvit.?

Zipvit apparently sells low-cost food, supplements of vitamins and minerals, namely oil, a key etc I want to know more about safety and quality of its products, the optimization of resources, trading rules etc. compared with Holland and Barrett or healthshops another leader ... if you like independent and / or comments from the government of the company and its products that would be great ....

Vitamin supplements are known that has virtually no therapeutic effect in most people. If you look thoroughly modern packages or can make health claims or say "may or no. This is because they are no longer allowed to make accusations without legal basis. In general, can not use more of the best vitamins. If vitamins are soluble in excess water peed on, but in the case of vitamin C, so that many applications were made of large doses in recent years, a study has suggested an increased risk of cancer in doses 500mgs/day! If vitamins are fat soluble, can accumulate and cause toxic effects. This is probably Vitamin A, which can cause eye damage and vitamin D, taking very high doses of vitamin D a day for several months can cause toxic effects and high levels of calcium in the blood.

Is there such a thing as fair trade jewelry?

A Google search of "fair trade jewelry" will show many companies, many of which sell ethnic jewelry produced in small villages in the developing world. The concept of "socially responsible trade buyer Fair "is based, but the third labeling organization, Fair Labelling Organisation (FLO) - of which TransFair USA is a partner - not classified not present as certifiable as the Jewellery trade fair. Otherwise, some major players in the jewelry industry are beginning to integrate concepts such as any "diamonds and gold of fair trade." So how does a sense of these statements of jewelry, particularly in 150 billion dollars, the jewelry industry more traditional?

Search self-proclaimed fair trade jewelry

"Global Exchange" is a number in Google organic listings without paying jewelry fair trade research. TransFair logo on the bottom of your web page that will allow the buyer to believe that their jewelry, such as coffee they sell, is the third party certified.

As part of their argument, they emailed to ask questions about the origins of their metal and precious guarantees of the environment through its manufacturer, ventilation and disposal of toxic chemicals used in the manufacture of jewelry sold. Finally, sterling silver money is supposed to be 925%. The imports of small towns in developing countries are known for the labeling of Sterling Silver Jewelry has a silver content sterling silver real.

Global Exchange said, explaining that it qualifies as jewelry fair trade is that its jewelry is manufactured in a small village artisans and fair working conditions, which oversaw. They could not answer questions on the environmental practices of small producers and no control the content of the law.

This application of the term "fair trade" jewelry for the Global Exchange supported by a concept of fair trade are outside of FLO. Global Exchange also referred me to the Fair Trade Federation (FTF), which is a member. TFF FAQ page lists web gems as "fair trade" products. Interview with Carmen Iezzi, executive director of the FTF, which helped me to understand that the FTF has nothing to do with the products: only companies sell them - a subtle distinction probably lost on the average person.

Global Exchange, at least, has a story behind its ethical position, many small and large businesses and shops with the "right" and "eco-label" around the jewelry transfer accounts most questionable.

Although "trade Fair piece is to help villagers in the developing world, is a small niche market in the jewelry industry integrate as a whole, making one hundred and fifty billion dollars per year.

The difficulty of Fair Trading into the industry integrate Jewelry

Taking the concept of "fair trade" jewelry of the population and the main market in the world of jewelry (including gold diamonds, bling bling), it's like hit the old square peg in a round hole. Currently, the industry is totally based on commodity prices and led something like wood or oil. Fair trade is simply not part of the paradigm.

Studying the conditions necessary for a fair trade item is quite simple: coffee. The grains are organically grown on farms often have to work collectively to promote the spirit resulting from economic prosperity in the community. Third party certification provides a level of integrity that the ethical consumer shopping at Whole Foods feels good.

To translate the same concept into a product of jewelry, there would be a factor in the labor and environmental practices in the supply of metals precious stones and precious. Mining and development of raw materials - the metal refining and cut gems - are additional measures. The manufacture of a finished product presents another process with its own labor and the environment. In addition, a wide range of products jewelry, rings toys in the high end. In trying to reach agreement on the criteria for what is ethical with such a complex supply chain is disparate size.

The Movement of ethical sourcing in the industry Jewellery Shopping

Meanwhile, a small segment passionate and dedicated in the jewelry industry generally try to define "ethical supply, with the objective ultimately a kind of agreed criteria that leads to true, third party certification of fair trade jewelry. This will be a long process.

To this end, the first summit on the ethics of jewelry was held in late October 2007 in Washington DC. suppliers based on fair trade NGOs, Manufacturuers, miners from around the world, groups of certification to third parties, such as TransFair met to initiate this process.

The jewelry industry derives most of its revenues from diamonds, precious metals and precious stones and precious. The movement of ethical sourcing has led the interest of governments, corporations and the World Bank meeting in Washington took place.

Most raw materials the jewelry industry are derived from the efforts of small-scale mining are underway to ethical practices in this sector. first efforts FLO focus on ARM (Association for Responsible Mining). Some companies, such as the Rapaport Group and Columbia Gem House, have taken initiatives strong in equity, by extrapolating the concept of fair trade be applied to the supply of precious stones. However, precious metals and gemstones in themselves are not a whole piece jewelry.

Even if a finished piece of jewelry could be similar to a bar of Fairtrade chocolate which may have parts that are certified independent, we can not have ethical origin jewelry making regardless of who its own labor and environmental concerns. Fair concerns commercial items that occur in developing countries. Unlike coffee, jewelry Traditional can not be easily manufactured in a developing country, World Village, it requires a large initial investment in equipment and materials first.

Apart from businesses that provide goods manufactured from the factories of ethics, experience the most significant in this direction is underway in South Africa in a project called Vukani-Ubuntu. The project enables people, mostly local municipalities to supply trade jewelry, training, mentoring and equipment. It is strongly supported by the government and NGOs. However, according to the Lords Mares, Executive Director of South African Council of jewelry, one of the toughest challenges is to bring the product on the market.

Jewelry is a product that is strictly costs considerably. The ethical concept of supply does not add value because the market is underdeveloped. My research shows that Anecdotal progressive buyer who buys green Patagonia does not feel comfortable with a person of typical jewelry sales. Win the Green "progressive" of new population will not be easy. However, the ordinary world jewelry that are involved are serious and largely by humanitarian concerns - Except possible large corporations that can be attached to polish their diamonds, the image of dirty gold.

Although millions of websites reference to "fair trade
jewels, "the designation is, at this point, too ambiguous for all but a few major manufacturers flows jewelry use. Consumers interested in the ethical jewelry house is to find detailed information on the origin, work and practice environment. Today transparency is often more valuable to consumers than any designation, the "fair trade".
