Understanding that making small changes (like making a stronger effort to recycle or saying no to a low price/low quality piece of clothing) will add up to a tremendous impact. Our team of affiliates each contribute their part to spread the word about our mission. When it’s a cause that resonates so deeply with what you believe, it’s a natural extension to want to share it. And together, their efforts have allowed our brand to grow and impact the lives of hundreds of people who are eternally grateful for their dedication and hard work.
We don’t have a marketing budget. We don’t pay for retargeting banner ads of our products that follow you around the internet after you visit our site. You won’t see our name in a full page magazine ad. We grow by word of mouth and after 6 years we’re confident that was the right decision.
Fair Trade is more than just an adjective—it’s a lifestyle that chooses purpose. We encourage you to choose that purpose with us. Consumer advocacy for brands that make a difference are what spark change from the industry as a whole. My hope is that our mission’s legacy will inspire people to understand the impact of your own life and the choices you make.

Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither will a slow fashion industry transform our buying habits. The products you buy showcase the ideals you support and the more you support sustainable brands, the more that larger brands will acknowledge the need to take steps in the direction to a slow fashion world. It’s amazing what we can accomplish when we work together.
