Fair Trade


What is Fair Trade?

The World Fair Trade Organisation succinctly 
defines Fair Trade as follows:
Fair Trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalised producers and workers. 

Fair Trade organisations have a clear commitment to Fair Trade as the principal core of their mission. They, backed by consumers, are engaged actively in supporting producers, awareness raising and in campaigning for changes in the rules and practice of conventional international trade. 

Fair Trade is more than just trading: it proves that greater justice in world trade is possible. It highlights the need for change in the rules and practice of conventional trade and shows how a successful business can also put people first.

The Dharma Door is an endorsed Fair Trader of Australia which means we have demonstrated how we meet the following 10 Principles of Fair Trade
  1. Creating Opportunities for Economically Disadvantaged Producers
  2. Transparency and Accountability
  3. Fair Trading Practices
  4. Payment of a Fair Price
  5. Ensuring no Child Labor and Forced Labor
  6. Commitment to Non Discrimination, Gender Equity and Freedom of Association
  7. Ensuring Good Working Conditions
  8. Providing Capacity Building
  9. Promoting Fair Trade
  10. Respect for the Environment

Why do we practice Fair Trade instead of conventional trade?

At The Dharma Door we see Fair Trade as an opportunity to make a difference in the world. Having travelled extensively over the past 20 years we've been exposed to many different standards of living. We believe that one the best solutions to assisting people out of poverty is to give them the opportunity and tools to work. We wouldn't have wanted to tread this path any differently. See more about the artisans that we work with on our Meet The Makers page.
