FAIR TRADE FEDERATION Great Products. Tremendous Impact.


Amba Purple Bandhani Scarf $38, Sevya

why shop fair trade? The holiday months mark the busiest shopping season of the year. As you set out to tackle your own list, we encourage you to think about the business practices your dollars support. Like you, we believe those who make the things we wear, use, and eat should be rewarded fairly for their talents. Fair Trade Federation members are fully fair trade -- we’re dedicated to the people who make our products and doing good business is our highest priority. When you shop with the organizations included in this guide, you support a different way of doing business. Questions about this shopping guide? Contact us at info@fairtradefederation.org.
