Fair Trade Gifts
It is quite likely that on your travels you will come across products that fall under the umbrella of fair trade. The fair trade concept has been around for quite a long time, although the official Fair Trade label did not appear until late in the 1980’s. Essentially, as we all know, fair trade is about decent working conditions and trading terms for producers, fair prices, and of course sustainability for the locality. Although initially concentrating on food produce, the whole fair trade ethos now includes all kinds of ethically produced handmade and recycled items, such as jewellery, stationery, incense, and ethnic gifts.
