Welcome to The Intersection: Fair Trade! We are based out of Surrey BC, Canada, and we sell quality, ethically sourced Fair Trade products. Our goal is to provide you with buying alternatives for products you would be buying anyway. We want to offer you alternatives that come with faces and stories. We want you to be confident knowing that the money from your purchases is going directly back to the person who made your goods and their communities, and that they are being treated fairly. We want to change the way you shop and think about shopping, because your purchases have consequences. They impact real people in real places and their quality of life.
One of the world issues that weighs heaviest on our hearts at The Intersection is the trafficking of human beings. Disgustingly, this is the second largest industry in the world today, and we firmly believe that it needs to stop. As a business we try and focus specifically on buying products from groups who are rescuing, training, and hiring women who have been trafficked, and are doing all that we can to battle against this horrible practice. We believe that each life is precious and worth fighting for, and are trying to advocate for those who are enslaved and sold like commodities. For more info, click here. We can make a difference if we all do it together!
