India’s first Shop for Change Fair Trade certified product launched at Mother Earth stores

January 7, 2010

Future Group affiliated store Mother Earth has partnered with Shop for Change, a fair trade organization, to launch India’s first Shop for Change certified products. Shop for Change has launched the fair trade certification with Mother Earth t-shirts and plans for further extension to other cotton products. The Shop for Change certified t-shirts abide by fair trade standards, thus ensuring that cotton farmers receive a fair deal for their produce. The Shop for Change t-shirts are available at all Mother Earth stores across India. The certification guarantees fair trade practices, which means that farmers who grew the cotton for the Mother Earth t-shirts and their families are empowered to improve their lives and care for the environment.
