Organics Unlimited Supports Fair Trade

Organics Unlimited Fair Trade 17

Help Organics Unlimited celebrate the 9th annual Fair Trade month in October! Every purchase makes a difference, and Organics Unlimited is proud to offer Fair Trade bananas.

Who does it benefit? A committee of workers was given the freedom to decide how to spend the money they received from Fair Trade, and they determined to invest that money in providing backpacks and school supplies for children in their communities. These backpacks, pencils and paper may be simple supplies, but they give children the opportunity to gain a proper education and pave the way for brighter futures.

Fair Trade USA is a non-profit organization that certifies many perishable foods including bananas. These products are priced higher but for good reason. The additional pennies ensure to avoid exploiting farm workers who have put in countless hours of manual labor. Fair Trade is important because the proceeds from every purchase of a product that has earned the Fair Trade Label goes toward promising customers high quality products that protect the environment and improve lives of the hard workers who make these products available to you on a daily basis. This organization focuses its efforts toward benefiting developing countries by ensuring farm workers receive the fair wages that they deserve.
