Fair Trade is…
an international movement that puts people before profits and seeks to use trade as a force for positive change. It is an alternative way of doing business, one that builds equitable, long-term partnerships between western consumers and producers in developing regions of the world.
We believe that fair trade is one way, to help alleviate world poverty. Many people today have no access to clean water, adequate food supplies, or basic education. According to Oxfam America, 70% of the world’s population lives on less the $2 per day and two-thirds of third world farmers live in absolute poverty.
