What is Fair Trade?
Fair trade is capitalism with a cause. Fair Trade is a Hand Up instead of a Hand Out. Fair Trade directly helps communities that need it most. For instance, this group (at left) is one of the many groups you can help with your purchase. They are in Ethiopia and your purchase can provide refuge, health care and the chance at a new life to women who have survived war, domestic violence and societal oppression due to their HIV/AIDS status.
