Inspiring Quotes for Fair Trade Month

Happy Fair Trade Month!

First recognized in 2004, Fair Trade Month is celebrated annually during the month of October to raise awareness about the importance of the fair trade movement. 

This Fair Trade Month, we're donating a portion of all orders to help establish a tailoring & stitching training center in India! Learn more about our initiative here.

We've curated a list of 9 inspiring quotes from iconic figures in the sustainability & fair trade movement to help you celebrate!
