Perhaps you say to yourself that no matter what you do it seems too little to make any real difference?
Well there's good news, every little truly helps!
Over the last decade the numbers of people choosing to spend or invest their money ethically has risen dramatically.
Fair Trade is now a global movement with over a million small-scale producers and workers organized in as many as 3,000 grassroots organizations and umbrella structures in over 50 countries!
Their products are sold in thousands of World-shops or Fair Trade shops, supermarkets and many other sales points in both hemispheres.
The Fair Trade movement is engaged in debates with political decision-makers in European institutions and internationally on how we can make international trade fairer.
And Fair Trade has made mainstream business more aware of its social and environmental responsibility. In short: Fair Trade is becoming a real force to be reckoned with and every one of us can play our part in it.
