Our
AIMS

Our Guidelines in development ~

RAINBOW TRADERS are people committed to the following aims and principles:

  • We seek to lead more natural and sustainable lifestyles,
  • We believe in the spirit of cooperation more than competition,
  • We work with nature as our ally always and not against it,
  • We respect each other for being who truly are, not as seperate individuals but part of One Life,
  • We believe in equality in decision making, of true speaking,
  • We are willing to share our skills and resources trusting that by giving we are also receiving,
  • We seek "ENOUGH" and no more than is needed to live on.
Who We
Are

Rainbow Traders are just people living in Alentejo, Portugal learning to live more sustainably.  
We are a network of co-workers, friends and neighbours.  We offer fairly traded professional services for mutual benefit that can support our sustainable livelihoods and communities.

We offer our services by financial or work exchange or by donation.

How
It
Works!
Rainbow Traders are generally helpful people willing to help each other.  Most of us are, or are aiming to be, part of an ecologically minded or sustainable community.  This implies a more free exchange of information, a greater social cohesion and trust.

Your skills can be put to good use * You choose what you need * You ask if it's not available

In building our community we need: handiworkers, labouring, carpentry, driving, civil liason, weaving, wholefood, solar power, therapies, and a lot more ...  from our local area, or from networking our Needs and Offers.

 In a community skills need to be pooled and shared if it is to grow.  Some trading can be done freely give or by exchange. If you want to 'buy' or 'sell' we have created our own Rainbow Currency.

Trading Rainbows You spend Rainbows with other trading members to buy what you need.
  • 1 = 1Rainbow,
  • When you join you pay 25, and then just 10 each year,
  • You will be able to exchange Rainbows for Euros at the Rainbow Communities Centre or on-line,
  • The Rainbow Exchange accounts are open for any member,
  • Any Rainbow Trader who introduces a customer to any other Trader's Service can earn %income on their purchases.

Rainbows are a local currency.  That means you can trade without finance just with skills that are needed.

People who are doing work for their community often get paid in Rainbows.
