Q: What is fair trade?
Fair trade means changing the way we think about our supply chains. We think about how the materials are sourced, we think about the welfare of the artisans, we think of the environmental impact, we think of the longevity of each product. We think about today and tomorrow. Fair trade means that the products are created in celebration and safety of the Earth and the artisans who create them. The raw material is sourced with minimal damage to the Earth, and the products are created and distributed in ways that diminish waste and negative environmental impact. For Poko, it also means that the artisans are working in safe conditions and paid a fair wage, as they create products that are made to last.
