The Beginning
Call us crazy, but Fair Trade actually started from just an ordinary young lady in 1946. Her name was Edna Ruth Byler.
Edna was very interested in the beauty women could create just by using a needle and fabric. She borrowed their work and promised to give something in return. Soon many people started this bartering system and more shops started popping up.
But businesses wanted more money for less products, and fair trade's prices were ridiculous! Fair Trade didn't call themselves that in the early days,
they thought there
prices were normal.
So, Fair Trade was
soon forgotten.
The Come Back
The prices and pays for workers were getting extremely low. So low, they couldn't even afford to live. Then, a old bargaining business from the 1900 came back, offering to pay Fair prices, good products and better lives. They called this organization "Fair Trade".
How Can Fair Trade be more successful?
If consumers were educated of the benefits of Fair Trade, it would be more likely for them to change shopping habits to buying Fair Trade certificated products. One way they can find out if there product is fair trade cerficied or not is if it has a fair trade logo, or not.
