Fair Trade Certified

Fair Trade Certified is a powerful logo.  It’s come to represent empowerment for farmers and for farm workers from around the world.  Fair Trade offers farmers once surrounded only by poverty a chance to develop skills necessary for competition in a Global Marketplace.

The products YOU buy today are directly connected to your future.  They effect how we will all live tomorrow with clean air, clean water, and with renewable resources. 

Fair Trade Certified products not only offer fair wages for farming families, they uphold rigid environmental standards, and offer consumers a higher quality end product. 

All of this is very good news for all of us — we receive high quality, sustainable products — and the standard of living for millions of people is raised simply because we made a great choice! 

When you see Fair Trade on the label you know:

  • Farmers and Farm Workers have been paid a fair price
  • Environmentally-Sustainable farming practices have been used
  • Respectful living conditions have existed
  • investment has been placed back into the community

Fair Trade products are harvested as:

  • Coffee   
  • Tea
  • Cocoa
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla
  • Rice
  • Fruit
  • Herbs

That, BTW, is the Fair Trade logo on the NoMoWally bag in the photo above.  (Crummy limits of size for the page).  See a better photo in the Media Library.
