October is Fair Trade Month, a time to celebrate the 1.3 million farmers and workers around the world who grow and sew the Fair Trade products we love. It’s also a time to celebrate the NGOs and brands working day-in and day-out to help farming communities build better businesses, and better lives. That’s why we’re proud to announce our partnership with nonprofit organization Kiva.
