Apparel and Home Goods

Americans buy more clothing than any other nation in the world, so let's make every purchase matter! The Fair Trade Certified Apparel and Home Goods program is the first of its kind, enabling consumers to consider the social, economic and environmental bottom line when they shop. With the ability to benefit cotton farmers and the workers who manufacture the products, the Apparel and Home Goods program offers an unprecedented opportunity to positively impact lives, improve communities, and protect the environment.
