Revolutionize your wardrobe with Fair Trade
We Wear Fair Trade to look, feel and DO good. Each article of Fair Trade Certified™ clothing works to provide safe working conditions and sustainable livelihoods for factory workers around the world. The additional money they earn with every sale is called the Community Development Fund, which workers use to implement important projects that address major needs. Thanks to Fair Trade, over 20,000 factory workers and cotton farmers invested in critical causes like education and healthcare that benefit their entire communities.
We’ve asked a few of our favorite bloggers, yogis and Instagram personalities to model their favorite Fair Trade Certified apparel. Together, these photos highlight the range of Fair Trade options available. Take a look and get inspired, then check out our Pinterest page and “vote” (like/repin) for your favorite! Whether you choose a strappy swimsuit or flirty frock, you’ll be making a powerful fashion statement, one whose impact stretches all the way across the globe.
