Global Exchange's Fair Trade stores have always sought to successfully market fairly-traded products with two main goals in mind. One is to increase benefits for producers and consumers through economic fairness, mutual respect, and understanding and the other to build support for a more sustainable system of trade. The Fair Trade stores' idea for a blog came out of people's desire to hear more about the work that we do as an organization with the Fair Trade movement and more importantly, about the producers that we work with. You have asked, so now you shall receive! Our blog aims to highlight new exciting products at the store, bring you even closer to the producers through stories and photos, and will also serve as a forum to discuss anything and everything Fair Trade. We thank you for your interest in Fair Trade and happy reading!
