EMPOWER FARMERS THROUGH USE OF FAIRTRADE COTTON
Fairtrade is an alternative approach to conventional trade and is based on a partnership between producers and consumers. When farmers sell on Fairtrade terms, it provides them with a better deal and improved terms of trade. Fairtrade offers consumers a powerful way to reduce poverty through their every day shopping.
