What Is Fair Trade?

What is Fair Trade?

Fair Trade is a global movement that is made up of a diverse network of producers, companies, shoppers, advocates, and organizations that are putting people and the planet first.

We at The Mindful Market Company believe that everyone wants to do what is right- for their families, fellow global citizens, and the planet. We also believe that we all have a responsibility to uphold what is right. That is why we are committed to making the right choices easy and available to everyone. Based on the simple idea that the products we buy and sell are directly connected to the livelihoods of others. Supporting the Fair Trade Movement is a way to make a conscious choice for a better world.


Supporting Fair Trade empowers people to make choices that are good for themselves and their community, regardless of status, gender, or location. When supporting Fair Trade, you are giving the artist and workers a voice in the workplace and the community.

Income Sustainability

Earnings should fulfill basic household needs, regardless of volatile market prices. Our standards ensure producers and workers have the money needed to invest in their lives and their work.

Community and Individual Wellbeing

When people have the capacity to invest in better futures, the result is a healthier workforce and ultimately higher quality goods. Our model is fueled by committees of artists and workers who decide how to invest the Fair Trade. Supporting Fair Trade helps support their community's greatest and often most basic needs: often clean water, education, and healthcare.
