Fair Trade

Fair Trade

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.

    I love the idea of Fair Trade Pam, and also when I see the logo, especially on coffee! I wondering if bartering will ever come back – no reason why not to. Another example: friends could hold meetings where they exchange much loved and well cared items of eg clothes, shoes, jewelry .. win win! I did that a long while ago – everyone was so happy with new items – 🙂 🙂 🙂
