Inesscents™ and Fair Trade
Fair Trade is about creating beneficial relationships rooted in trust, balance and respect. These relationships span geographic regions and cultural boundaries.
As a global movement, Fair Trade brings attention to people around the world. Where do our products come from? Who is behind the production? Are the working conditions safe? Are individuals and communities earning a fair living wage? Fair Trade highlights the true cost of goods inside of the global supply chain in its totality.
Ethical awareness and triple bottom line practices are the foundation of our business practices. Inesscents™ looks at the grand picture of how international sourcing impacts global health while Fair Trade is a movement and avenue that allows businesses to hold the greater good in check.
October is Fair Trade Month. This month is about inspiring more companies to expand their economic platforms to include real world global social issues such as human rights, diversity, trade benefits, fair compensation, working conditions, and human values. We are all one human family and Fair Trade allows an easy way to care and protect the livelyhood of many cultures who offer significant goods to the global market.
