What Being.... 360 Fair Trade Means
Posted by Joycelyn Ghansah on
The words “Fair Trade” mean so much more than just “feel-good words.”
As a member of the Fair Trade Federation, Global Crafts is fully committed to the principles listed above in aspects of our business, both domestically and world-wide.
Our Fair Trade Federation membership means we go beyond the fair trade basics. It’s a 360° approach that’s about building true partnerships with artisans and working to create positive change through all of our work. 360° fair trade means not only fair wages, but also long-term, holistic partnerships that empower artisans to grow their businesses. As an FTF member, we go through a rigorous screening that looks at our whole business. We call it 360° fair trade, meaning that we’re committed to being fair and responsible in everything we do — socially, economically, and environmentally. We’re proud to practice 360° fair trade.
There are many options to buy fair trade products wherever you shop so make your purchases mindfully. Every purchase matters.
