Why Fair Trade?

  • Because more than ever, as consumers or business managers, we want to know where the products we buy come from, who makes them, and what our real impact is. We want to become more responsible and shop according to our values as much as possible.
  • Every day, more people are waking up to the fact that our modern way of life has become too wasteful and is placing more pressure on those less fortunate than us and on our beautiful blue planet. If we want to align ourselves with a more sustainable future, fair trade offers us a road map, a practical path anyone can follow.
  • By committing even a small corner of your store to handmade and fair trade products, you become part of the world-wide fair trade chain of conscious change-makers.
  • Fair Trade gifts infuse your store with meaning and purpose so your everyday work makes the world a kinder place.
  • By sharing artists' stories and exposing more people to the wonders of ethically-made goods, hopefully you will build stronger connections, touch hearts and empower shoppers to become active forces for positive change with every fair trade gift they buy, and that is the essence of win-win thinking!
