Today is World Fair Trade Day, an international celebration of what it means to take a stand for justice in all aspects of commerce. Manos Zapotecas is a proud member of the Fair Trade Federation, and today we reflect on the ways practicing true fair trade opens doors for artisans and their communities across the globe.
So what does fair trade mean?
For us, it means running our business under the tenets of the FTF Fair Trade Principles:
Fair trade may be the exception now, but businesses and organizations all over the world are working hard to make it the new standard. Conscious consumerism is on the rise!
As customers and retail partners of MZ, your continued support is consistently helping to improve the lives of our artisans - and for that, we are immeasurably grateful. In these troubled times of division and uncertainty, our work is more important than ever…. so let us celebrate the doors we open every day, as we move forward toward a more fair and just world.
