Fair Trade is a global social movement that focuses on fairness in the market place, and in particular on fair pay and fair rights for producers. Throughout my research of Fair Trade, I have found that Fair Trade can take on many forms, and can be applied to many different situations, but all these situations have a similar theme of advocating for the rights of producers. Very often Fair Trade is culturally important to the people it aims to help, as it works to help them keep their customs and beliefs while making a profit that can sustain them and their families. I feel that it is important to support Fair Trade products because it is a simple way to show support for people around the world who may not have the same rights and opportunities that we do.
