Here's what Fair Trade means to Global Fayre and to our fellow members of the Fair Trade Federation:

Create Opportunities for Economically and Socially Marginalized Producers
- Fair Trade is a strategy for poverty alleviation and sustainable development.

Develop Transparent and Accountable Relationships
- Fair Trade involves relationships that are open, fair, consistent, and respectful.

Build Capacity
- Fair Trade is a means to develop producers' independence.

Promote Fair Trade
- Fair Trade encourages an understanding by all participants of their role in world trade.

Pay Promptly and Fairly
- Fair Trade empowers producers to set prices within the framework of the true costs of labor time, materials, sustainable growth, and related factors.

Support Safe and Empowering Working Conditions
- Fair Trade means a safe and healthy working environment free of forced labor.

Ensure the Rights of Children
- Fair Trade means that all children have the right to security, education, and play.

Cultivate Environmental Stewardship
- Fair Trade seeks to offer current generations the ability to meet their needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Respect Cultural Identity

The holidays are here!
We are seeing two concrete signs that we're getting close to the end of the year; sub-zero temperatures that cause people to pause a moment to de-frost when they first walk into the store, and more male customers than usual (but no signs of panic in their eyes yet - that will come next week!)
We just reached our third anniversary; thank you all for sticking with us over the past three years.
If you have visited the store over the past few weeks you may already have met the newest member of our team, Sophie. We're delighted to welcome her on board.
Your support for Global Fayre, and for Fair Trade in general, makes a huge difference to so many people across the world.
