Artisans and Fair Trade

SHOPPING FOR A CHANGE® is an extended global marketplace for fair trade products by artisans, artisan co-ops, and companies that employ these artisans, predominantly women, from economically disadvantaged areas throughout the world, enabling them to earn a fair and sustainable income so they may lift themselves from poverty.

Working directly with artisan groups, we bring you beautiful products at fair market prices. A greater percentage of the price goes back to the producers and they receive equal pay for equal work by women and men. Fair trade fosters development, and provides safe and healthy working environments. It encourages producers to engage in production practices that manage and use local resources, creating environmental sustainability. 

Every time you choose to purchase a fair trade item

you support a just and sustainable global economic system.

Every purchase you make is a step towards the eradication of global poverty.
