Here at GeckoGifts.co.uk, we source many diverse items, from a variety of fairly trading importers. Everything you find on this site will have been ethically sourced and fairly traded, from a range of countries where the income from the products has a massively beneficial effect on the communities that create these wonderful items. In many cases, this income provides a dignified escape from potential poverty and enables artisans to pass on their skills to future generations.
To celebrate the 3 year anniversary of Gecko Gifts on 14th February 2016, we are proud to say that we are now officially operating as a social enterprise, which means that all profits made will go towards futhering the social and environmental projects that we are involved with. This will be both on an international level through Fair Trade with our current suppliers and by seeking out new artisans to support through trade and on a local level, through the charities & organisations that we have become affilliated with over the years.
Thank you to all of our customers and supporters – past, present and future. You enable our business to do good in the world. Your support really does make a difference to people’s lives.
Here’s to many more years ahead!
We are extremely pleased to announce that as of March 2014 we are proud to be members of the British Association for Fair Trade Shops & suppliers (BAFTS).
As a result of our new premises, we are able to add a ‘collect in person’ option to the online store, for those who are local enough to pick up their order in person.
Geckogifts.co.uk launched on 14th February 2013 as the Fair Trade division of Many Memories Ltd. This is the future direction that the company is heading in as the fair trade concept really resonates with the personal views of the company directors.
