Fairtrade is a simple way to make a difference to the lives of the people who grow and create the things we love. It’s all about making trade fair.
My dream of supporting local artisans and farmers is about Fairtrade. Nearly three billion people live on less than two dollars a day a number that does not even equate to a fair living wage.
We all deserve a living wage – one that enables workers and their dependants to meet their needs for nutritious food, clean water, shelter, clothes, access to education, access to health care and transport.
Fairtrade changes the way trade works through better prices, decent working conditions and a fairer deal for farmers and workers in developing countries.
Fairtrade is a movement for change that works directly with businesses, consumers and campaigners to make trade deliver for farmers and workers.
Whether you’re in the market for coffee, beauty products, cocoa or cotton, look for the FAIRTRADE Mark when you’re out shopping. It is a small step but we can make a difference.
