What is Fair Trade and Living Wage?

Fair Trade is a system of exchange that honors producers, communities, consumers, and the environment. It is a model for the global economy rooted in people-to-people connections, justice, and sustainability (Mazurek, 2014).  Buy from local farmers to support your own community and economy.

A living wage is a decent wage. It affords the earner and her or his family the most basic needs of living without need for government support or poverty programs.  With a living wage an individual can enjoy a life without worrying about poverty.  On a living wage an individual has the ability to live comfortably and support their family.
