Fair Trade - National

Even though none of us can single-handedly end the global economic crisis, every Fair Trade purchase you make will help end the economic crisis for a struggling Fair Trade producer and their family.

Spring is here and Easter and Passover are right around the corner. These holidays remind us to take a fresh look at the world around us.

What better way to begin anew than to use our power as consumers to support those who are less fortunate?

That is why Global Exchange encourages you and your loved ones to celebrate Passover and Easter with Fair Trade products that will transform the lives of producers and support economic and social justice.

Although times are tough here in the United States, the recession places artisans and farmers at the beginning of the supply chain at risk of losing access to their most basic human needs. Right now, it is more important than ever to purchase Fair Trade products whenever possible, so that Fair Trade cooperatives and their member families can make it through the economic crisis. Fair Trade continues to support a system of trade that alleviates poverty and creates lasting and sustainable jobs for marginalized people throughout the world.

Where can you support Fair Trade producers?
