Is the perfect gift a pleasure to give or a joy to receive? We think it's both. For that reason, we filled this year's gift guide with gorgeous and entirely fair-trade items you can feel good about giving. Hailing from Africa, Asia, Central America, and more, every product in these pages represents the time and craftsmanship of a justly treated and fairly paid artisan or farmer. Think of it as positive globalization: When you purchase goods that meet the Fairtrade Labelling Organizations International (FLO) standards, you empower people in developing countries to create economically viable and socially sustainable communities. Plus, because fair-trade certification prohibits the use of genetically modified organisms and pesticide-laden crops, buying fair trade is also good for the planet.
