Shop Your Values

About the Doco

Still Photo from "Shop Your Values"


Do you make purchases based on cost and convenience, or do you shop your values?  If you're against child labour, sweatshops and slave labour, then it's time to stop putting your money in places that support these things.  It's time to shop your values.


"Shop Your Values" is the winner of the 2017 Fair Trade Fashion Short Film Festival in Whitehorse.

This was the first film made after Toprock Productions was created in March 2017 and is Toprock Productions' first festival win.

The Purpose

This purpose of this film is to get people to question where their values lie and if where they shop reflects their beliefs.

Fair Trade is a way to ensure that people who live in 3rd World Countries are able to work to earn a liveable wage as opposed to the minimum wage.
