Fair Trade Federation Approved!

From The Earth is proud to announce that we are Fair Trade Federation certified! 

 

Congratulations! The Screening Committee and all of us here at FTF would like to welcome From The Earth as a new member of the Fair Trade Federation. The Committee was very impressed by your dedication to Fair Trade practices, your capacity building work, and your commitment to working with marginalized communities. Thank you so much for your patience and cooperation through this process- we are delighted to have you on board.

So, why is this important to us?

Being fair trade certified does not change our fundamental business practices. We will continue to live and work out our values, namely, a focus on job creation, on opening up larger markets for local artisans, and on caring for the environment.

Being certified gives us an advocate for our values and work practices. They can open additional markets for the products we love so much, which translates into additional sales for our local partners.  

Learn more about the Fair Trade Federation on their website and see why we are so happy to be one of their members.
