Fairtrade fights for the planet
Smallholder farmers and rural communities have contributed the least to climate change and are often affected the most. Changing weather patterns, diseases, pest, soil erosion, decreasing yields and income loss are just a few of the devastating impact already being experienced by producers. Fairtrade provides critical pricing stability and support so that farmers can adapt to and mitigate the effects of the climate crisis. On top of that Fairtrade farmers commit to long-term soil & watershed management, GMO-free seeds, sustainable production, minimal use of agrochemicals and biodiversity protection
How does it work?
Your Licensing Fee
You earn 1% for the Planet certification by contributing 1% of your annual sales to environmental causes. Because we are an official partner, 100% of your licensing fees can go towards your commitment. You can use your quarterly invoice to prove your contribution so there is no extra paperwork needed from us!
Other donations count
Fairtrade does not accept direct donations because we want to spend all of our time increasing market access for farmers and workers in the Global South. So if your licensing fee does not meet the 1% commitment, you get the awesome opportunity of contributing to another worthy cause.
Consumers across the United States are demanding more from companies than ever before. They are voting with their dollars, speaking up against injustice and placing their loyalty with thoughtful brands that take steps to be more sustainable.
By partnering with both Fairtrade and 1% for the Planet – you are showing your shoppers and followers than you care about the people and places behind your goods.
