We carefully select suppliers and organizations that share our mission to fight human trafficking, extreme poverty, and exploitation. Our partners work to empower artisans (mostly women) to make a livable wage in their respective communities.

And because we are a volunteer-run nonprofit 100% of the money spent at Ethical Trade Co is reinvested into creating more opportunities around the world.

All our products are ethically sourced and we ensure that our artisans are paid a fair, livable wage to sustain freedom from human trafficking, extreme poverty, and exploitation.

Check out our collections to learn more about our partners and their incredible stories of resilience and grace.

I like my coffee best when it is Ethiopian Organic Medium Roast; fresh, hot and black. know I can always depend on Ethical Trade to deliver it to me fresh, sustainably packaged and on time. Their reliability has been flawless! Who could ask for more?

We bought this as a Christmas present for our future daughter-in-law who grew up as a missionary overseas. She cried when she opened it (which means she LOVED it!!!) What a meaningful gift that helps to give back to others! We were extremely pleased with the quality of the necklace, the meaning behind it (beauty) and the super fast shipping!
