  1. I am grateful for FairTrade for it allows many who could not ordinarily be able to compete and/or manufacture products without it! Everyone is treated equally for we most certainly need more in this world! This most positive aspect, which is very dear to me, is extremely important to other countries outside of Us/Canada and alike then I will take the not so good aspects of the program where others feel the price too high and/or lacking of labeling! I can not ever think of anything more positive then Fair Trade for us all!
