Hudson Fair Trade town

Hudson becomes 21st fair trade town in Canada

Fair Trade seeks to change the terms of trade for the products we buy – to ensure the farmers and artisans behind those products get a better deal. This offers producers the chance to achieve a better standard of living and help break the cycle of poverty in their communities. Most often this is understood to mean better prices for producers, but it also means longer-term and more meaningful trading relationships as well.

For consumers and businesses, it’s also about education. Fair Trade is a way for all of us to identify products that meet our values so we can make choices that have a positive impact on the world.

The Hudson Fair Trade Committee will be participating in local events to bring greater awareness about the benefits of Fair Trade on both a local and international level. Look for the Fair Trade booth during various festivals and events to become more knowledgeable and inspired to get involved!
