Try this next time you post a pic on Instagram. The whole idea is to create an awareness of our purchasing power!

Focus on buying food, clothing, coffee, flowers and other products with a purpose!

When you buy Fair Trade you support a fair price for products.

For Fair Trade Certified™ products, a base price for the commodity is set by the international Fair Trade Labeling Organization. The price attempts to cover the cost of production and a living wage to cover the basics of food, shelter, clothing, education, and medical care.

Importers and retailers are then screened and certified by TransFair USA to ensure that they are paying the Fair Trade price for products. Crafts, apparel and other non-certified products are sold by members of the Fair Trade Federation, businesses committed to the principles of Fair Trade. For these crafts, a living wage is paid in the local context.
