World Fair Trade Day – Supporting local farms and businesses is important. When buying locally, we support our neighbors, help the community, and promote environmental conservation. But our community isn’t isolated in a bubble. We are part of a global community that consumes goods and services from every corner of the world. The Fair Trade Project supports local communities on a global scale. They demonstrate how we can support small-scale local farmers, support their families, and contribute to a healthier world as a whole.
