Fair Trade: What Happens When You Buy

Fair Trade is a easy way to give gifts to loved ones and help working poor families around the world. If you’re looking for gifts you won’t find on department store shelves, check out the CRS Fair Trade web site and blog.

When you buy Fair Trade, you:

– Celebrate the human dignity of the farmers who grew it;
– Demonstrate a special concern for the poor;
– Act in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in need overseas;
– Ensure that farmers earn a just wage;
– Contribute to a more just distribution of wealth;
– Practice responsible stewardship of Creation; and
– Promote the principle of subsidiarity.

But buying Fair Trade is not entirely selfless. After all, you get great products that are unique and received a lot of care in their production.
