World Effect Fair Trade:
High Design. Quality Products. Improving Lives. Protecting our planet.
What is fair trade? Fair trade is a trading partnership based on transparency and respect, whose goal is to obtain greater equality in international trade. Fair trade allows a sustainable development by offering better working conditions and securing the rights of marginalized producers and workers in developing nations around the world. This teaches disadvantaged communities how to use the free market to their advantage. Purchasing fair trade products can improve an entire community’s day-to-day lives.
World Effect aims to build long lasting relationships with our fair trade suppliers. We negotiate fair prices and we pay for much of our product in advance. This alleviates cash flow and financing concerns for our fair trade partners. Our fair trade partners all abide to the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) standards.
Fair trade is fair for all. We believe that our fair trade products are neither a charity nor a compromise, but an item you’ll be proud to own. This business model still allows us to provide our customers with innovative quality products that are beautiful and enduring at a great value. Please refer to our product descriptions to see which of our products come from fair trade suppliers.
