Making Good Choices about Fair Trade

Making Good Choices about Fair Trade

By Paula Johanson – September 2009

 

 

 

All people want their time and effort to be valued. Anyone wants to trade his or her time and effort for fair value. That’s what fair trade is about–making fair deals locally, nationally, and internationally.

This compelling book engages students in the issues of fair trade, helping them to make greener choices to support the ecology and sustain the environment and communities of people. Readers learn about fair business standards and about the ways they can support fair trade, not only in the products that they purchase but in fair trade ideas that can help communities and nations. In this book, students discover that a business that relies on fair trade will earn reliable profits over a longer time than one that serves only its own interests. They will also learn how just one person can make a difference in fair trade practices.
