Fair Trade products are food or crafts that are produced under standards designed to end and prevent the poverty, sweatshop labor conditions, environmental degradation, etc that are endemic to the free trade “race to the bottom” that puts profits above people and the planet.
Why is Fair Trade Important?
Fair Trade Certified products alone positively impact the lives of the over one million Fair Trade farmers and their families, who are located in 58 countries. Fair Trade raises the standards of living for these families and offers a comprehensive development of their communities. It offers true change, and not charity.
Fairly traded products affect millions and millions of producers providing them with more resources and control over their lives. Support of Fair Trade lifts others up while respecting Mother Earth and her limits.
All of this positive change is as easy as reaching for Fair Trade Certified coffee at your grocery store and shopping from merchants who support Fair Trade practices.
