Fairly Traded | Local - Global - Impactful
This weekend, I encourage you to find the SMALLEST thing you can do to make a positive impact in the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That may be paying for someone's coffee, bringing a reusable bag to the grocery store, buying one Fairtrade ingredient for a recipe...you get what I mean. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let's pat ourselves on the back for what we DID do and not what we didn't. ⠀

Fairly Traded | Local - Global - Impactful
I always tell people to start where you are and, when you know better, you can do better. I want Fairly Traded to be a place where you can ask questions, try, make mistakes, fail, and then try all over again. I don't want you to be so afraid to do or say the wrong thing that you end up doing nothing at all. Let's learn from one another, grow together, and give each other grace when we get it wrong 🙏

Why do I do what I do?
We have seen how important it is to come together as a community for the greater good. But even before a global pandemic, I saw the need to put the phrase "Shop Local. Think Global" into action. To me, it's never had to be one or the other: you can have beautiful, high quality products and fair trading practices. One thing will never change: my commitment to advocate for local businesses and global artisans together in one place.

Fairly Traded | Local - Global - Impactful
I started this business in October of 2019 to work trade shows for fair trade brands. When the pandemic hit, I *pivoted* my services online and started hosting virtual markets to introduce these amazing brands to my followers. I started offering freelance services to the businesses I was featuring and was able to go full time with this baby of mine. And, yet again, I'm working on a new way to connect conscious consumers with ethical vendors!

What do you look for?
On Monday I asked what you look for and you delivered! My list of terms has grown to 21 and counting! Words such as organic, natural, zero waste, eco-friendly, vegan, and cruelty-free all came up! This can be overwhelming- how do we know which brands are positively impacting the world and in what ways? I encourage you to explore the values that matter most to you and find products that align with those. And if you have any questions about where to find them- I’m always happy to help!

Align your Purchases with your Values
It has always been about helping consumers navigate the confusing world of ethical sourcing and find products that align with their values for me. I have been working in the fair trade industry for awhile now and I still need to learn the latest terms companies are using to describe themselves. It’s important to note as a customer the increased occurrence of “greenwashing” that is happening, as well. Let’s learn and grow together- remembering that we will make mistakes along the way.

We know that consumers are increasingly aligning their values with their purchases. Companies know this too! And have started using more and more terms to describe their products in a way that makes them look good. Ethical, sustainable, natural, direct trade- what do all these terms mean? And who do they benefit? Check out this week's blog post for a quick run down of the top 5 terms I see being used in the fair trade space!
