50 Fair Trade Fashion Features

From Nature-Loving Knickers to Socially Conscious Scarves

— November 19, 2011 — Social Good
This SocialBusiness.org top list of fair trade fashion features points to how the once-obscure notion of "fair trade" (in its capitalized form) is now increasingly being considered the status quo.

In the Summer of 2011, the Stanford Social Innovation Review published an article dubbed "The Problem with Fair Trade Coffee," which illuminated some of the overall drawbacks of having uncompromising certification requirements and how they can lead to detrimental outcomes for both producers and consumers.

With everything from nature-loving knickers to socially conscious scarves and upscale designer lines, this top list of fair trade fashion features will show you the array of products available in a sphere that is growing tremendously, but may need to rethink how and why it conveys its message.
