On May 12, we celebrated World Fair Trade Day and the hard work, resilience, and innovation of small-scale farmers and artisans. And this May, Fair World Project is partnering with brands committed to working with farmers to offer deals on their fair trade products, along with offering more opportunities to get involved.
The basics of fair trade: Fair prices paid directly to farmer organizations, with premiums for organic production and community development. The fair trade movement is also supporting small-scale farmers as they tackle climate change.
From coffee to cacao, from mint fields in India to shea nut trees in Togo, small-scale farmers are combining traditional regenerative organic farming practices with new innovations. They are the kind of food and farming systems that we need to build resilience and tackle climate change.
