Fair Trade organizations promote producer's cultural traditions, adapting their work for Western markets while preserving local cultural identity. Fair traders conduct business in a manner that respects workers' rights and strives to reduce the often hidden human cost of so-called "bargains." Moreover, Fair Trade organizations work primarily with small businesses, democratically run associations and/or cooperatives that provide healthy alternatives to large-scale manufacturing and sweatshops.
We at The Fair Trader want to share our passion for fair trade by sharing "Shopping That Makes A Difference" with everyone. You can be confident that a significant percentage of your dollars will go directly to the artisans around the world who create your purchases. We are proud members of the Fair Trade Federation as well as Chicago Fair Trade.
