"Let the beauty we know become the good we do." -Rumi
These powerful words inspire us to do the work we do. It is through Fair Trade that we, as consumers, can make a difference. Support this producer-centered supply chain model and you'll be helping provide sustainable employment, educational opportunities and medical care to hundreds of artisans and their families. But it doesn't end there.
The quote also inspires us to continue with our 2015 Giving Back Campaign. This month, we're pleased to partner with St Louis Earth Day and support their continued efforts to make everyday Earth Day since 2002.
The idea is simple. You Buy, We'll Donate!
