Celebrating Fair Trade Month
We're proud to partner with brands that put principles before profits. Whether they're constructing bags out of upcycled materials or making shoes out of hemp, our clients constantly put ethics before economics.
This October, Fair Trade USA is celebrating its 20th anniversary. We're proud to partner with Aventura and Ecōths, who use Fair Trade Certified factories that must adhere to rigorous social, environmental, and economic standards.
Fair Trade USA ensures workers making Fair Trade Certified goods work in safe conditions, protect the environment, and build sustainable livelihoods. The organization also ensures these workers earn additional money through a Community Development Fund.
When Aventura or Ecōths sell a Fair Trade Certified style, they put a portion of the profit into a Community Development Fund, which goes directly back to the community of origin. That community then decides how best to spend the funds to meet their unique social, environmental, and economic needs.
When you shop Aventura and Ecōths, you're not just purchasing sustainably-made and outdoor-ready clothing, you're making working conditions safer, healthcare and education more accessible, and brighter futures attainable for generations of families.
