WHY CHOOSE FAIR TRADE?
The short version: child labor is prohibited, discrimination is prohibited, safe conditions are a priority, and of course, the wages farmers and artisans receive are fair!
Take coffee, for example:
A hugely important aspect of Fair Trade coffee is the Fair Trade Minimum Price. This price is determined by a global benchmark on production costs, and was last set in 2011 at $1.40 per pound, or $1.70 for organic certified coffee. When the regular market prices drop below this fair trade price, farmers can be assured that they can still cover their costs.
We've written a whole blog post about the differences between regular coffee supply chains and fair trade coffee, if you want the long version.
In addition to receiving a livable wage, coffee farmers who work with Fair Trade distributors often have access to further education about human rights, safety, and business to foster independence.
The same is true about most of our fair trade vendors whether they sell coffee, tea, chocolate, apparel, or other artisan gifts!
By purchasing Fair Trade, you're contributing to a fairer world in which farmers and artisans receive a livable wage for the immense work put into our favorite products.
