Fair trade shopping

Fair trade - to ensure that those who produce the products receive fair recompense for them. It is a simple and just way to do business and help make a contribution to eradicate inequality and poverty. By supporting shops that promote such products you will help ensure that people are more fairly rewarded for what they produce than they would otherwise have been. The more people that shop in this way the more pressure it puts on business to source its products in this way too with time. A number of retailers that sell fair trade products are listed below.
