At the heart of everything we do at Fair Trade USA is our ultimate goal to alleviate poverty among farming communities around the world. If you're reading this blog, you understand that one way we do that is by helping consumers and businesses understand how they can make every purchase matter.

Today we are unveiling the second video in our three part micro-documentary series, this one focused on how Fair Trade helps protect the environment. As you will learn in this video, Fair Trade is not just about earning a higher price for the harvest, it's about learning techniques for sustainable agriculture that help protect the environment and make the world a better place for future generations.

As a nonprofit organization, Fair Trade USA received generous funding from the Peery Foundation to create these documentaries. It is through contributions from individuals, businesses, and charitable supporters like Peery Foundation - as well as the commitment of licensed business partners - that Fair Trade USA is able to help grow the Fair Trade movement. Join us now in spreading the word that Fair Trade is improving lives worldwide! Take two minutes to watch this video and then share it with your friends and family via Facebook and Twitter. Every view matters!
