Where to Shop
Kat Doyle, Director
The Church believes trade must benefit people, not just markets and economies. It is crucial that these complex, multifaceted agreements include a robust juridical framework that protects the common good and the most vulnerable.”
— Bishop Frank Dewane and Bishop Oscar Cantú, Joint Comments to US Trade Representative on North American Free Trade Agreement.
What is Ethical Trade?
Ethical Trade is not only concerned with safe working conditions and fair prices, but also with environmental sustainability. Engaging in ethical trade demands that we look at our own purchasing habits and that we be conscious of what we spend our money on. It begs the question, “Are we being good stewards of our finances and of our environment?”
