Why buy a Fairtrade scarf?
2015-10-22 - Buying and promoting Fairtrade demonstrates solidarity with a wider global movement towards workers’ rights.
Fairtrade isn’t about charity. It is about rethinking the relationship between producers and consumers. Fairtrade makes sure that this relationship is based on honesty and respect. It is an assertion of the rights of all to decent living and working standards.
Choosing to buy Fairtrade scarf is an important way to ensure that the people who have made those scarves are being treated fairly.
By taking action on Fairtrade, you are securing rights for some of the most marginalised artisans in the world: helping ensure that they get a fair deal and a living wage and are able to work towards the sustainable development of their communities.
