Import Ants are wholesalers of ethically handmade & eco-friendly products.
Our vision is to have Fair Trade products easily available to allow people the choice to buy ethically. We believe that these choices make a difference and can build a better and more sustainable world for all of us.
Our story began in 2008 with Elephant Dung Paper after visiting Maximus and seeing how the production of the paper benefits the villagers and helps to protect the endangered Sri Lankan elephant by linking them to the economy of the village.
While working in Sri Lanka we have discovered many other wonderful producers, from community based groups, The Araliya Community Company and Thimble, to the small family company that makes our Eco Max Brushes, all of which work with local disadvantage women creating beautiful handmade products using fair trade principles that are making a difference in their communities.
We build long term relationships with our partners, visiting them yearly and working with them to ensure that they continue to meet Fair Trade standards and provide safe and happy working conditions empowering their workers.
Import Ants is a member of the NSW Fair Trade Network group, a member of FTA of Aust and continue to promote Fair Trade through NSW events, Popup shops and the Fair Trade Zone at the Australian Gift & Homewares Association trade fairs.
