What about Fair Trade?

Fairtrade is about sustaining prices, fair and proper working conditions, local environmental support, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. By mandating companies to pay reasonable prices (which must never fall below the market price), Fairtrade puts conventional trading methods to the sword, conventional trade is largely corrupting and rotten and usually disadvantages the poorer workers and economies. Fair Trade enables them to take control of their own destiny, and to substantially improve their own, their families and their local communities lives.
