Creating clothing and jewelry is a craft, and the hands that make them should be happy and respected. When we take humanity out of the work, we not only take meaning out of the item we are buying, but we degrade the livelihood of the worker who strives to make something in their effort towards a better life.
That is why it is so important to think of fairness, not just this Tuesday, but always.Sometimes it's tempting to seek out the cheapest deal, but we need to be mindful of why that product is cheap, and question whether or not the person who made it was payed in mere change. By stepping up and supporting Fair Trade products, we are making a stand for fairness and safety in the workplace, while opting for a better environment and an overall better world.
