Look for “Fair Trade Federation” or “Fair Trade Certified™” on products you want to buy. Companies offering “fair trade” should belong to the Fair Trade Federation. Agricultural products (and there are more than just cocoa and coffee) should be certified by Fair Trade USA. Fair Trade USA also certifies such products as handbags, clothing, and skin care.
