Ryan: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! Fair Trade works to change the way businesses buy and sell products for the purpose of benefiting people and the planet. Better pay, safer workplaces, protecting water and forests, all while empowering farmers, factory workers, and those working on fishing boats. We support these individuals with the opportunities they need to provide safe homes, education, clean water, healthcare, and other needs as they identify them in their own communities. Fair Trade isn't a charity where we just give things away—rather, it is a method of using business to benefit workers in ways that are more fair.
