ICUJP Fair-Trade Shopping List & Resources

Most Fair Trade producers are women and men who have broken out of the capitalist hold by forming worker-owned co-ops. No bosses. And in place of the profiteering middle-man, Fair Trade companies form long-term relationships with the workers, buying at a fair price, and selling to us through a non-profit store chain like Ten Thousand Villages, small shops, pop-up bazaars, websites, or in some cases major stores.

From bars of chocolate to major gifts, what we give makes a difference in the world.
