At Threads Worldwide, we believe fair trade is a verb. Fair trade is how we do business. Fair trade is also a movement changing lives around the world!
In a world where over one billion people — that’s 1 in 7 people! — live on less than $1 each day, it becomes clear what a difference fair wages can make for people, families and communities. Fair trade promotes fair wages, healthy working conditions, and a sustainable environment for both workers and the planet. A fair wage is a livable income in the local context that does not skew the local economy, but accounts for time, skills, cost of living, and purchasing power.
Our partners set their prices taking into account the true cost of living for their family including food, medical needs, transportation, education, etc.
