Fair Trade Month Is Here!

October 01, 2017

Fair Trade is not about charity or handouts; put simply, it’s a process of making a truly fair exchange for the goods we buy. Fair trade is a way of doing business that keeps small farmers and artisans as active participants in the global marketplace. It empowers consumers to make purchases that align with their values.

The voluntary actions adhered to along the supply chain—from producers to buyers—are designed to support many economic, social, and environmental goals. Some examples include raising and stabilizing the incomes of small-scale farmers, farm workers, and artisans; equitably distributing economic gains, advancing democratically controlled and owned producer organizations; promoting safe working conditions; and much more!

Start here with the short video below explaining fair trade's role in sustainability, then follow our blog all this month as we explore fair trade topics from apparel and accessories to food and more!
