About Fair Trade
In the context of the Fair Trade Movement around the world, Fair Trade is international trade in which producers are paid a fair price. The movement advocates the payment of a higher price to producers as well as social and environmental standards.
Fair Trade means that those who work - particularly in developing countries - are paid properly for their labour. Fair trade's strategic intent is to work with marginalised producers and workers in order to help them move towards economic self-sufficiency and stability. It also aims to allow them to become greater stakeholders in their own organisations, as well as play a wider role in international trade.
Fair Trade proponents include a number of international development aid, social, religious and environmental organisations such as Christian Aid, SERRV International, Oxfam, Amnesty International, Catholic Relief Services, and Caritas International.
Whenever we are dealing with hand made games, we seek out Fair Trade producers - those who are being paid fairly for their work. Fair Trade promotes ethical international trade, it rejects sweat shop labour and encourages you, the customer, to do your bit and use your buying power to strenthen producers who truly do look after their workers in developing countries.
If you have any questions about our board games or would like more information about our producers, please do not hesitate to contact us.
