Fair Trade and Ethical Sourcing
"Fair trade is an approach to business and to development based on dialogue, transparency, and respect that seeks to create greater equity in the international trading system.
Fair trade businesses partner with farmers and craftspeople in developing countries who are socially and economically marginalized in finding markets and customers for their goods."
"Ethical Sourcing is the process of ensuring that the products made are obtained through responsible and sustainable methods. This includes ensuring that the workers who make the products are paid a fair wage and all human rights are met, the factories are clean and safe environments to work in, and that all social and environmental aspects of production to the workers and the surrounding communities are considered."
