Why Fair Trade?
Fair Trade is simple really. It means that the exchange of goods is done in a way that ensures every person involved in the making of your products is treated "fairly": they are paid a fair wage, they have access to clean and safe facilities, health care, and the product they produce will be exchanged based on principles of economic and social justice.
