Importance of Fair Trade
The importance of Fair Trade: it is a global movement. The meaning of Fair Trade is simple. It’s fair prices paid to producers in developing countries.
But the impact of Fair Trade is complex and wide. When you purchase a Certified Fair Trade item, it’s not just a label. It’s a promise that the labor used to farm/create that item was socially responsible and equitable. Global monitoring on Fair Trade practices goes on daily to ensure the social, economical, and environmental standards are kept and maintained high, and a safe, healthy work environment is provided.
The purchases you make every day, when labeled Fair Trade, you are making a global change.
