Fair Trade Footwear
Why Fair Trade? Our consumer spending choices affect people’s lives around the world.
The products we enjoy are often made in conditions that harm workers, communities and the environment.
But increasingly consumers are demanding more humane, more environmentally sensitive products.
In today’s world economy, where profits rule and small-scale producers are left out of the bargaining process, farmers, craft producers, and other workers are often left without resources or hope for their future.
Fair Trade helps exploited producers escape from this cycle and gives them a way to maintain their traditional lifestyles with dignity.
Look for products that are made from sustainable or recycled materials and are produced under socially responsible conditions.
And as Gandhi once said Be the change you want to see in the world
