Happy World Fair Trade Day

World Fair Trade Day 2013

World Fair Trade Day is the second Saturday in May every year.

Fairtrade is about supporting workers and farmers in developing countries, but the same principles make me support fair prices for crafters, too. Especially local ones.  When you buy handmade goods at a fair price from a local maker, you’re helping them do what they love. That’s a much better alternative than buying cheap goods made in unethical work environments.
