Fair Trade Certified
We've all heard horror stories about toddlers tilling fields or farmers working 14-hour days under the blazing sun for paltry pay. The Fair Trade Certified seal means that Costa Rican coffee growers or West African cocoa producers have been paid a living wage, work in safe conditions, and have access to health care. The program also ensures that crops are grown sustainably and without damaging local ecosystems. Find the Fair Trade Certified seal on coffee, chocolate, nuts, tea, produce, herbs, spices, wine, and more.
