Fair Trade Connect was created to help you learn about fair trade and support the movement through your everyday buying decisions.  Fair trade is a powerful means of promoting sustainability, protecting human rights, and fighting global poverty.  Millions of people like you are expressing their commitment to social justice and sustainable change by supporting the fair trade movement.  Thank you!

There is still a lack of understanding about how fair trade works and it is very difficult to find a good variety of products in most grocery stores.  As we become more educated about trade issues and demonstrate our commitment to fair trade by purchasing certified products, mainstream retailers will get the message and start offering more choices.  In the meantime, please keep coming back and visiting Fair Trade Connect.
