The 10 Principles of Fair Trade are fundamental tools for fighting poverty. In observance of Anti-Poverty Week, INDIGENOUS is participating in the World Fair Trade Organization's Agent for Change campaign.
The WFTO started the global observance of Anti-Poverty Week in 2015 as a way of showcasing Fair Trade's positive impact. When producers are freed from the conventional imbalances of trade, they are able to work their way out of poverty. Along with the WFTO and all its members, we believe that trade should work for people and the environment, and not at the expense of either.

Lately my inbox is bombarded with emails addressing an apparently pressing matter: what to wear apple picking. I imagine multitudes of women, separated by distance and culture, yet all staring into their closets. Just wondering. "What SHOULD I wear apple picking?"
I live in an apple-tree-rich region, yet I have only been apple picking twice. Who are these women who apple pick often enough to buy new clothes for the event? Do they exist? Besides, can't you just wear jeans and a t-shirt? Yes, folks... I'm fairly certain that the Apple-Picking-clothing genera was recently invented by desperate email marketers.
What I want to know is, what do I wear all autumn long? What sweater or tunic is going to get me through the overcast days and drizzle? I want that cardigan that'll go with everything I own so I don't have to think about it, ever. I want clothing that my kids can snuggle up to on the cold winter days ahead. I'm thinking long term here.
This line of thought has made me rather touchy at work. I've been wandering around the office touching and trying on the fall line, and I have a few picks to share. They're guaranteed soft, versatile, and impeccably made. And you can throw in organic & fair trade (because ethics make all the difference).
