why fair trade?

This thursday S.A.V.E is going to be hosting a Fair Trade Booth. This is a good opportunity for activists, such as myself, to inform individuals why it is so important to purchase products that are Fair Trade certified. It is so important to inform people on this matter because many don't know the amount of good that Fair Trade products do. It is important to buy these products because it helps further the efforts in making the global economy an equal economy. This organization tries to make sure that third world countries are not being taken advantage of in the global economy so we all can have an equal chance at economic success. 

Fair Trade also guarantees a fair prices and safe working conditions for producers. It also supports sustainable practices that minimize our environments footprint. So why wouldn't you want to buy Fair Trade products?

...... thats what i thought.
