100 Ethical Fair Trade Products

From Anti-Sweatshop Apparel to Good Cause Candy

— August 12, 2012 — Social Good
These ethical fair trade products are fun, useful and most of all a socially responsible choice. Giving back to communities around the world that are struggling to develop and families that have challenges making ends meet is always a great investment.

While the capitalist model has encouraged lowest prices possible for a competitive marketplace, there has been a movement to push back this idea of thinking when it comes to handcrafted goods or items made from countries that are in a unique position.

Sustainability, responsibility and environmentalism have become three hugely popular ideas for living a good life and building an awesome company. Fair trade has been a cornerstone of this movement and has given people across the world the ability to live better lives for themselves and the generations that come after them.
