Our daily decisions as consumers have the power to build a market place that benefits us all. Catholic Relief Services’ Fair Trade program provides an opportunity for US Catholics to purchase Fair Trade coffee, chocolate and handcrafts through a network of fully-committed Fair Trade companies.

October is Fair Trade Month, and CRS is highlighting the important work being done around the world for this cause.

CRS’ Fair Trade program is committed to economic justice and environmental stewardship. It works to ensure that disadvantaged farmers and artisans receive a fair deal for their products. Watch this slide show and learn more about the difference this program makes in the lives of our brothers and sisters around the world.
