Why Purchase Fair Trade Products?

When we become aware of unfair, painful, unjust conditions that exist for our favorite foods and products; soon we want to make choices guided on strong Catholic Principals:

– Access to the common good that all can work & grow in fair working conditions

– Rights are respected

– Supports just practices keeps solidarity with our human family

-Through our parish purchases of Fair Trade Goods, we support six high school students at Catholic schools in Guatemala and Pakistan
