What is Fair Trade?
Fair Trade helps ensure responsible practices and safe, healthy working conditions on the farms where products are grown. To be certified Fair Trade, producers must meet rigorous standards, which cover areas like child labor, maternity leave, water conservation and the elimination of harmful chemicals.
Fair Trade also helps empower farmers and workers to actively improve the future of their families and communities. Through Fair Trade, farmers earn a Community Development Fund with every sale. This money is used collectively to address important needs in the community, such as education, healthcare or water access. The most powerful part is that it’s up to the farmers to decide how these resources are allocated.
