The Well Made, Fair Trade series explores how many foods, everyday objects, and familiar household items are made, and how the purchase of these products impacts the lives of the people who produce them. Fair trade is a concept that promotes paying farmers a fair price for their goods and a fair wage to employees. Case studies show examples of both good and bad working environments around the world and encourage discussion of ethical practices and fair trade. The work of organizations such as Fairtrade that provide confirmation that fair trade standards have been met in the production of products are discussed.
