It is amazing all the wonderful things Alaffia is doing. I enjoyed reading about it all. Employment for women, transportation for students, a living wage salary for a teacher, and medical care for pregnant women. It's all very touching.

It is important to help others by purchasing Whole Trade Guaranteed products as a way of giving back.

I always teach my girls Never support or make rich any cause that has no concern for you or your health, and that you can always tell by the quality of their products if they care. We thank you all for caring, and your products are Great! Training starts at home with ourselves reflecting positively on our young ones. Thanks for caring Fair Trade Products

I think it's important to purchase items from people who believe in quality and natural ingredients as well as purchasing from a small producer as opposed to a large company.

Buying Whole Trade products is important as it helps the workers continue to grow out of poverty and it gives us a stellar product.

Fair trade means that you're not being "unfair" or profiting at someone else's expense. It's doing the right thing.

I regularly buy Alaffia’s products at Whole Foods and thank them and Whole Foods for the opportunity to give to others in need.

I'd heard of Alaffia only through the World Fair Trade Day event I'll be holding in just over a week (through fairtraderesource.org). I definitely support what they are doing. I think, as consumers, it is our responsibility to make choices that benefit those who produce what we buy (and those choices end up benefiting us because fair/whole/direct trade products tend to be higher in quality than conventional products!)
