We partner with the Fair Trade Federation to ensure excellence in the production of each product we sell. They provide a rigorous verification process which requires businesses to commit to the nine fair trade principles. These include the provision of a living wage and safe working conditions to suppliers and artisans in regions where well paying work is otherwise not likely to be found.
We are also proud to be members of Green America, a group of business leaders dedicated to building a green economy. Green America focuses on the values of climate, sustainable agriculture, responsible investing, and fair labor -- values we are proud to strive for at Lucia's World Emporium.
