For those who are new to the concept, instead of buying a gift for someone, a giver makes a donation in the recipient’s honor. A holiday card and a gift insert describing the alternative gift are provided.
Fair trade is a movement whose goal is to give producers a fair price for their products in an effort to reduce poverty, provide ethical treatment to workers and farmers, and promote environmentally sustainable practices.
We make things simple by letting you write one check for all of your alternative gifts. Also, most of the fair trade vendors accept credit cards!
