“Every time you spend money, you are casting a vote for the kind of world you want.” Anna Lappe’s words showcase the power people have through their everyday purchases.
The fair trade system, started in 1946, has worked to help people find that power and become more conscious about the types of products and services they are purchasing. According to One World Fair Trade, the fair trade system ensures that workers along every step of the supply chain receive fair wages and are treated with dignity and respect.
Fair trade, according to the World Fair Trade Organization, “is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers and workers.”
The fair trade movement has been gaining momentum across the world and Weber Center Shop proudly supports this concept by featuring fairly traded products. Our beautifully crafted products include jewelry, home decor, pottery, scarves and bags.
When shopping at Weber Center Shop, look for these logos on products.
