Something to keep in mind when choosing product brands. Cheaper isn’t always best, certainly not for the producers in third world countries. This site helps bring awareness to unethical practices used by suppliers who provide you and me with the cheapest options for maximum profit. If you can pay a little more for certain items that were produced and packaged by suppliers who pay reasonable wages to sustain workers’ livelihoods, you are making a huge positive difference in the lives of thousands.
Fairtrade International works to secure a better deal for farmers and workers. Fairtrade International sets the internationally-recognized Fairtrade Standards, provides producer support, and licenses the FAIRTRADE Mark.
Fairtrade standards are designed to tackle poverty and empower producers in the poorest countries in the world. The standards apply to both producers and traders.
