Fair Trade isn't charity, it's actually so much more. The Fair Trade movement is equipping people to be the change in their communities. This is accomplished by empowering them with a meaningful source of income.
- Fair Trade employment pays artisans from third-world communities 2-3 times the amount they would be paid working for a non-ethical brand.
- Research shows that women, on average, invest 80-90% of their income back into their children and into their communities. This is why a large portion of Fairlee products are female-made.
- Women who are making 2-3 times more with Fair Trade employment are able to invest so much more back into some of the world's most vulnerable communities.
This is why all of the jewelry we sell is Fair Trade Certified. We believe in empowering women with Fair Trade employment. Because she can do far more for her community than we ever could.
This is also why Fair Trade shouldn't be labelled as charity. Rather, it is a certification process that helps us offer better products, made in a way that creates opportunity for people living in third-world countries.
