The Fair Trade Full Circle “It turns out, good practices and good products go hand in hand. A growing number of farmers, factories, businesses, and consumers are seeing how investing in people best secures the future of the products (and planet) we love. By purchasing Fair Trade, you join a virtuous circle that improves lives, protects the environment, and produces high-quality products for you and your family to enjoy.”-Fair Trade USA campaign

Cheers to all the courageous women who made this happen. Women’s history is women’s right!
