Fair Trade is a trading practice and partnership that ensures that human rights, and fair pay for goods and services are being practised judiciously. Fair Trade also supports the fight against economic crisis, inflation, poverty, gender inequality, and more. This day also ensures fair and ethical practices on the part of the consumers.
This day is observed on the second Saturday in the month of May. This year it falls on May 14.
The theme chosen for World Fair Trade Day 2022 is Climate Justice Now! #LetsDoItFair.
In 2004, World Fair Trade Day was established by the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO).
WFTO is a global organisation involving 324 organizations in over 70 countries, and Fair Trade Day takes place on the second Saturday of May of each year.
The World Fair Trade Organisation firmly believes that the global crisis can be combated with a fair and sustainable economy locally and globally.
Trade must benefit the most vulnerable and deliver sustainable livelihoods by developing opportunities for small and disadvantaged producers. Millions of producers and traders, businesses and policymakers, supporting organizations and volunteers have contributed to the substantial growth of Fair Trade globally.
