Why Every Day Is World Fair Trade Day at Navitas Organics

Posted by Megan Faletra on May 11, 2018 4:12:00 AM

World Fair Trade Day is an initiative that the World Fair Trade Organization created to help celebrate fair trade practices around the world. Here at Navitas Organics, we are excited to celebrate World Fair Trade Day today and every day, as we continuously work to change the status quo of our global food system by being a part of giving small-scale farmers and workers in developing countries access to safe working conditions and fair wages. We want to be leading voices in supporting a sustainable global food system that supports the health of both people and planet.

What Does Fair Trade Mean?
Fair trade, as the name suggests, is working to make global trade fairer for all people involved. It focuses on improving working conditions, increasing wages for farmers and workers, and making the process of global trade more transparent. Overall, fair trade is working to eliminate child labor and unsafe/unethical working conditions, while improving environmentally friendly production practices.

How Is Fair Trade Different from Organic?
While fair trade and organic have some overlapping values, fair trade focuses more on the ethical treatment, labor, safety and wages of the people creating or growing our consumer goods. Organic, on the other hand, focuses more on the environmental and safety standards surrounding farming practices and the use of potentially harmful chemicals like pesticides.

Future Thinking: Our Part in Environmental Awareness

“You must own stock in the electrical company,” my dad would mutter, shaking his head as he went from room to room turning off the lights that my siblings and I left on in empty rooms around the house. I would frequently respond with a smart aleck comeback about how well my stock was doing. Eventually though, the point stuck, and now as an adult I think of this as one of the early influential lessons I learned about the importance of environmental awareness. 

I’m grateful for the experiences that have instilled a passion in me for environmental justice, sustainability and a commitment to help create a better world for the future. I’m even more grateful for the work I do at Navitas Organics that’s in line with these passions.

At Navitas Organics, we strive to make a difference – whether it’s through Fairtrade, B-Corp certification, a commitment to organic, non-GMO products or partnerships with environmental organizations such as A Growing Culture. One area that sometimes gets overlooked, however, is our local effort to operate our headquarters as efficiently as possible to help reduce our company’s impact on global climate change. So, today on National Cut Your Energy Costs Day, I’m here to highlight this important aspect of our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint.
