The Fair Trade Story is an animated short film that provides a succinct and entertaining introduction to the fair trade movement. Across the planet, right now, small-scale farmers and their communities are organizing to empower themselves. Consumers are joining them in solidarity to help tip the balance of power away from exploitative corporations and back to the people. Fair trade is a movement of small-scale farmers organizing to change the terms of trade, access the global marketplace, gain a fair price, and improve the lives of their families and communities.
We need public policies that truly benefit the public, so everyone can prosper—not just a handful of powerful corporations. But free trade agreements, written in secret, lock in corporate interests. Fair trade offers us an alternative—trade based on cooperation, transparency, and justice.
