Understanding Fair Trade
Fair trade certification helps you know that the products described as "fairly traded" are in fact fairly traded.
Why Fair Trade Certified is a resource to help you and your congregation understand the certification process and the reasons for it.
Equal Exchange Model of Fair Trade explains how Equal Exchange, the UCC's partner, implements the fair trade model.
As fair trade grows, questions arise about how to keep the movement attentive to the needs of small farmers. Business Week, June 18, 2008, explores, "Is Fair Trade Becoming 'Fair Trade Lite'?"
The Equal Exchange Website posts background information and updates about all of its fairly traded products including coffee, tea, chocolate, cranberries, almonds, and pecans.
