October is Fair Trade Month

October is Fair Trade month. Fair Trade is an important concept for the sustainable and responsible business. The principles of Fair Trade are that farmers and other suppliers will receive a fair price and enjoy fair labor conditions, direct trade is used when possible, organizations are operated in a transparent and democratic manner, there is investment in community development, and processes and methods are environmentally sustainable. Transfair USA offers suggestions on how businesses and consumers can support and connect with Fair Trade.
