By the time ingredients are turned into things like coffee, cookies and flour, many different workers, locations and processes have been involved. It’s easy for ethical practices to slip through the cracks. That’s why it’s important to purchase fair trade products. These products are made with practices that protect the rights of workers, provide humane working conditions, provide fair pay, and even protect the environment while they’re at it. Look for products boasting the Fair Trade Certified or Fair Trade International labels.
