We us Alaffia shampoo and conditioner. Fair Trade means people are treated as people. Anything else is disgusting.

It's important to me that my money goes where my mouth is -- in this case, to people instead of to anonymous corporations. Thanks for all your good work.

My daughter was born in Ethiopia five years ago. She's been home with us only four months and we want to support Africa and fair trade any chance we get

I think its a good thing to support fair wages for items made in countries that do not have protective laws for workers

The Whole Trade products are great not only for their wonderful (and minimal) ingredients but also because they are giving back to the communities that have so little. Each time I purchase our favorite Everyday Shea body wash I know that part of my money is helping to make a difference in other countries.

I have never tried Alaffia's products. Fair Trade is important to ensure that workers can earn a fair wage for the work they put forward.

I started buying Alaffia because they were made in my home state and I loved the programs they created. It's nice to see how they've grown. I continue to look for new products and love helping them with their causes.

I love that the increasing awareness of fair trade is creating a greater availability of fair-trade products, and it's even better when it enriches people's lives with natural materials and does good for the environment! Perfect!

I love the fair trade - I love the cocoa butter - I have a skin graft and I need to keep it moist - so I use the cocoa butter - wonderful!

Whole Trade is important to me because I believe everyone should be treated ethically in a way that maintains dignity.

I think that is it very important know know where the things that we used come from and if they are made in ways that we morally agree with. That's why I love fair trade items because I know that I'm not getting something that was made with someone's suffering.

Fair trade and organics are the only way to go if you want to feel good about what I'm spending my money on and puting on my skin

I buy fair trade items whenever I can. I recently purchased jewelry made by African women. I want to support underprivileged women and children and their families whenever possible.

Whole Trade should be important to people because Whole Trade practices are those which harm neither people nor the planet.

The more I learn about fair trade, the more I want to support every product that I can. It makes perfect sense to me! We are here to help each other. That's our sole purpose. We can do that even thousands of miles from each other, just by using our dollars and cents wisely. I know I will be!

All trades should be fair. Thank you carrying products of such integrity and quality and thank you to the people of Alaffia for making them.

I have not tried the products yet, but Whole Trade products are important because they support small communities and treat people fairly and ethically. It is simply the right thing to do.
