Why Buy Fair Trade?

Fair Trade

What is it?   

Fair Trade is a global movement that puts people and planet first by ensuring fair practices and living wages for workers, producers and sellers of all consumer goods.   For women in the global economy, fair trade assures that the first producer like the laborer who sewed our clothes, or assembled a part of a good we buy, or the person who grew the coffee bean for the coffee we drink, earns enough to support a family and to afford adequate shelter, utilities and basic market grocery, clothing, education and health care needs.
