What is Fair Trade?
Fair Trade ensures that craftspeople receive a fair price for their goods, and thereby make living wages from their work. Under Fair Trade, working conditions are healthy and safe and there is no child labor .
The Fair Trade movement has been vocally supported (through the organization Oxfam International) by well-known figures such as Antonio Banderas, Alanis Morissette, Michael Stipe, Colin Firth, Chris Martin and Gael García Bernal.
