About Us

The Ethical Trading Company is a socially conscious business based in Madison, WI. We import high quality, hand-made products from around the world. We carefully select partners from areas in the world where women and children are facing exploitation and extreme poverty. This helps our efforts to have maximum impact to create jobs that give hope and a future. Our unique one-of-a-kind-items are made by businesses and organizations that work with either the formerly trafficked or provide sustainable jobs as an alternative to slavery and human trafficking. Thank you for making an active difference in the world and helping end extreme poverty and modern day slavery by purchasing our product.
