Why Buy Fair Trade?
Buying fairtrade gives you the peace of mind that the product has been produced with high social, environmental and economic standards in place. What were the conditions like where the product was made? Did the workers work many hours for low pay? Whether you’re buying coffee, chocolate or jewellery as a gift this year, make sure your choice supports the supplier too.
