Fair Trade is the movement that aims to provide fair wages to workers, and to promote sustainable and ethical manufacturing.
How do we know that the items we're buying and selling are actually fair trade items, and what are the standards that determine the designation "fair trade"?
There are several fair trade organizations. Two of the major ones are the Fair Trade Labelling Organizations International (FLO), and The World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO).
FLO sets international standards for fair trade products, while WFTO is a monitoring system for fair trade organizations.
