Olympia, Washington

When you woke up today you probably showered, cleaned your face, brush your teeth, put on deodorant and put on your clothes. But did you know you could have been inevitably been causing harm to others? Most the products we use every day have a supply chain that relies on sweatshops, inhumane working conditions and a wage that isn’t enough to sustain people, let alone families.

Fair trade is one way we can ensure those we rely on are treated with equality and respect.
