If you are new to Casual Cat, welcome! If you have already experienced the wonderful world we’ve created, welcome back! Either way, once you enter the store, there are a few words you will hear, “fair trade.” Fair trade gifts are some of the best gifts one could give or even purchase for yourself! Why? Well, keep reading, and you will learn all about the global movement.
What is Fair Trade?
Fair Trade is a global movement made up of a diverse network of producers, companies, consumers, advocates, and organizations putting people and the planet first.
At Casual Cat, we believe in doing good things. By offering fair trade gifts, we’re committed to making the right choice based on the simple idea that the products bought and sold every day are connected to the livelihoods of others. Fair Trade is a way to make a conscious choice for a better world.
How it works.
The Fair Trade Certified seal is your way of knowing your product meets the highest of standards. For example, to earn the seal, rigorous social, environmental, and economic standards must be met and maintained. What does this mean? It means safe working conditions, environmental protection, sustainable livelihoods, and funds towards community development in areas that would not otherwise have such measures.
Your support towards fair trade products provides a financial benefit to communities and families in third-world countries that often go without the necessities we are accustomed to having. Feeding families and providing children with an education, honest wages in safe working conditions, and so on are just a few of the mentionables.
