The Fair Trade Delmar Campaign seeks to promote the availablity and use of Fair Trade products in the community of Delmar, NY.
We believe that by supporting fair wages, safe and cooperatively-run workplaces, environmental responsibility and direct trading relationships FAIR TRADE provides a better deal for people in developing countries who grow and make the things we buy.
We want to help create a FAIRER, HEALTHIER and MORE SUSTAINABLE WORLD by making Delmar NY a Fair Trade Town.
"Fair Trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers and workers – especially in the South. Fair Trade Organizations, backed by consumers, are engaged actively in supporting producers, awareness raising and in campaigning for changes in the rules and practice of conventional international trade."
