Fair-Trade Gifts not only help people who are struggling to build better lives but they are usually ecofriendly.
Fair-trade means that those of us who live in developed countries offer support to people in countries that are not as privileged by buying goods produced by them.
It's not hard to find fair trade products anymore. For Christmas consider fairtrade cards made from recycled paper or Fair-trade Christmas decorations. There are beautiful handmade ornaments from all around the world, fair-trade toys and jewellery available to brighten up someone's Christmas day
Finally when looking at each product read about each where and by who it was made not only will you learn more about the artisans who make these wonderful items you will then feel pretty good about your purchase.

Green living and gift giving can be so simply combined. There is no need to compromise on one or the other. By giving an ethical Christmas present it’s not just the gift recipient who will benefit but the planet and the people with whom we share it. It isnt hard to find something special that does no harm to the planet and even benefits others
Eco friendly and fairtrade Christmas presents such as this exquisite necklace made from tagua nuts, also known as vegetable ivory, are gorgeous as well as earth friendly
Handmade toys made are a better choice than factory produced plastic toys and fairtrade toys are also environmentally friendly as they do not require enormous amounts of power to produce. This cute little fairtrade baby's rattle is hand crocheted
