Fair Trade Month

is about supporting businesses that are fair trade certified. Fair Trade businesses seek to create a more equal international trade system through increased respect and transparency. This puts an emphasis on trading fairly with businesses from developing countries. During this month, Americans are encouraged to #FindFairTrade through stores in their own communities or by purchasing through Fair Trade partners online. Selecting Fair Trade Certified products is a choice for a better, more equitable world. With every purchase, you are supporting ethical sourcing practices, gender equality, and sustainable livelihoods for farmers and workers. You might also see products with the logo for Fair for Life - also a certified program meant for companies willing to demonstrate corporate social responsibility, from fair pricing and respect for human rights, to sustainability and sound business partnerships. The Fair for Life practice governs businesses and workers in the US and overseas.
