What is Fair Trade?
Fair Trade promotes and supports wages that are fair in the local context, meaning they help artisans and crafts people earn a wage they can live on and that is relative to other skills and trades in their local economic system. Fair trade organizations benefit artisans they trade with by paying between 15 percent and 30 percent of the retail price of products to the artisans. Fair trade also sometimes includes ensuring safe working conditions for artisans, creating sustainable livelihoods for communities in developing countries, and improving social and humanitarian conditions for those communities which helps ensure that workers can keep earning uninterrupted wages.
