Weekly introduction to the upcoming Sunday Sermon by Rev. Kent Ingram, Senior Minister

What is Fair Trade?

Our supplier, Global Crafts, defines it as a system of exchange that seeks to create greater equity and partnership in the international trading system by:

  • Providing fair wages in the local context
  • Supporting safe, healthy, and participatory workplaces
  • Supplying financial and technical support to build capacity
  • Promoting environmental sustainability
  • Respecting cultural identity
  • Offering public accountability and transparency
  • Building direct and long-term relationships
  • Educating consumers

Fair Trade Federation members foster partnerships with producers, because they know these connections are a highly effective way to help producers help themselves.

Fair Trade is not about charity.  It is a holistic approach to trade with the purpose of empowering the poorest of the poor.  Fair Trade organizations seek to create sustainable and positive change in developing and developed countries.
