Why Buy Fair Trade?

While traditional commerce has long been dominated by consumer needs and the incentive to make a buck, Fair Trade stands to create a more holistic system of exchange with far reaching benefits. When you shop legitimate Fair Trade products, you are doing much more than just purchasing a unique handcraft – you are supporting marginalized craftspeople in developing countries in an attempt to bridge the economic gap and create positive change throughout the world.
Fair Trade is about strengthening partnerships between buyers and producers by creating clear channels that make it easier for consumers to purchase unique and high quality products from people they trust. When you purchase Fair Trade handcrafts, you can rest assured that they were made in a safe and healthy work environment where artisans have a voice and receive fair wages. Building relationships and creating a more cooperative commercial structure allows for artisans and farmers to invest time and earnings back into businesses within their own communities, resulting in the creation of more sustainable local economies. Essentially cutting out the middle man, Fair Trade encourages producers to put earnings back into improving things like healthcare, housing, and schools within their communities.

Fair Trade handcraft artisans create their goods with pride knowing they are acknowledged and treated with respect. Most Fair Trade products are hand crafted with high quality material, making each piece you purchase unique to the person that made it. Fair Trade also encourages practices that are better for the environment.

When you buy Fair Trade, you are connecting yourself with cultures around the world in receiving unique artisan products that reflect a multitude of different people and places. Remember that what you buy matters – a Fair Trade purchase means benefiting artisans, and families while making a positive environmental impact. Be sure to look for the Fair Trade Federation logo alongside the company name when you shop in order to ensure you are purchasing a legitimate Fair Trade product, and encourage others to follow your lead.


Gifts With a Cause is a proud member of the Fair Trade Federation and we strive to help talented artisans from developing areas by bringing you unique, quality pieces with a purpose.
