What is Fair Trade?
The World Fair Trade Organization defines Fair Trade as: “a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers and workers…especially in the South.”
Fair Trade is made up of a network of producers, companies, shoppers, advocates and organizations whose objective is to make people and our planet a top priority. The idea is simple…what we buy and sell is connected to the livelihoods of our local, national and international community. Buying Fair Trade goods supports farmers, fishermen, artisans, and all kinds of workers in creating a sustainable living, and protects our environment. It is a conscious choice and way of life that is expanding around the world.
Why Should I Buy Fair Trade Goods?
Making the choice to buy Fair Trade goods empowers you to be a part of creating a worldwide sustainable market…one that protects our environment and cares about people. One of the most powerful tools we have is to voice what we want to create in our world by investing our dollars in sustainable, environmentally-friendly ways. Endorsing Fair Trade helps the movement grow, keeping our planet healthy for future generations.
Buying Fair Trade products adds your energy to revealing where change is needed in world trade, creating greater justice for all, and showing how a fair and successful business model can also work by putting people first. Fair Trade contributes to ending poverty, climate change, and economic crisis around the world!
Buying Fair Trade goods ensures you are getting organic, sustainably-produced products that are ultimately higher in quality, and made from the Heart!
