[...] Fair Trade is a better way to do business. It provides opportunity for workers and craftspeople in developing countries to earn a living wage for their skills, gaining access to technology, support systems and world markets through these long-term partnerships. Fair trade is a best practice among socially responsible companies, encouraging accountability and mutual respect between businesses and producers. Unfortunately it is not yet the norm (especially among some of the biggest companies). Fair trade may mean paying more for certain goods, but in the long run it means a more equitable future for everyone. Everyone does better when everyone does better. Besides, when you see the beautiful handmade fair trade pieces at Good Things Boutique, you will likely appreciate their quality, design and individuality. [...]
