Fair Trade is a market-based approach to alleviating poverty in ways that improve lives and protect the environment. It's also a mechanism for consumers to know that their products were grown with care, and that farmers and workers were paid better prices and wages, work in safe conditions, protect the environment, and earn community development premiums to empower and improve their communities.
