Fair Trade Health and Wellness Shopping Guide

A healthier, happier you is a powerful force for global wellness. Here's how.

Let’s face it: Nowadays, we’re not especially good at taking care of ourselves. Even when we do think about our health and wellness, it's often in terms of fitness goals and eating habits, but that’s only a small piece—complete health and wellness is about nurturing your mind, body, and spirit. The Zen Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh wrote, “When we feed and support our own happiness, we are nourishing our ability to love.” In other words, self-care isn’t actually selfish at all! In fact, a healthier, happier you is a powerful force for global wellness. That’s especially true with Fair Trade Certified™ products in the picture, because their purchase serves the community and individual well-being of the people who made it.

For instance, you can rest easy drinking a cup of Fair Trade Certified tea knowing it's helping tea growers in China support their children's education. Try this: Do something that feels good. Rest. Sleep. Smile. Light a candle at the dinner table. Curl up with a blanket and a book. Listen to your body. Scroll down for nine ideas that can help you do the most good, for yourself and for others, every single day. For more Fair Trade health, beauty, and body care products, shop here.
