Fair trade strives for equity between trading partners. One of the foundational tenets is paying fair price for a product that provides the maker with a living wage.
People live better when they make a decent wage. They can afford health care. They don’t need a handout if they are earning enough to feed their families.
You get products made with care and the maker gets a fair price for their hard work. It’s a win-win. So next time you shop, consider buying fair trade.
It’s Day 6 of the #AtoZ challenge. Whew! I think I need a coffee.
