Fair Trade

This quote from WFTO encapsulates what She Made This is aiming to achieve.

'‪FairTrade‬ is a trading partnership, based on ‪dialogue‬, ‪transparency‬ and ‪respect‬, that seeks greater equity in international trade. It contributes to ‪sustainable development‬ by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers and workers.

Fair Trade is more than just trading: it proves that greater ‪justice‬ in world trade is possible. It highlights the need for change in the rules and practice of conventional trade and shows how a successful business can also put people first.' - World Fair Trade Organisation
