Fair Trade is Good for the Planet

15 Dec

Merry Christmas No Waste Wednesdays-ers!
Today we wanted to point you towards the well-known fair trade store of Ten Thousand Villages and to highlight that  Fair Trade actively encourages sound environmental practices and the application of responsible methods of production.

Fair Trade makes sense on a lot of levels – consider an ethical Christmas gift this year!

Trade With a Conscience

Men and women around the world have a simple dream – to earn an honest living, to provide for their children and to be gainfully employed in a job that brings dignity and joy. Ten Thousand Villages partners with thousands of talented artisans in healthy business relationships.

Often referred to as ‘Fair Trade,’ our philosophy of helping to build a sustainable future is based on the principle that trade should have a conscience. Through Fair Trade artisans receive the respect, dignity and hope that comes from working hard and earning fair value for their work.
