Empowering Women through Design and Fair Trade: One Mango Tree




I am so excited to introduce you to One Mango Tree. There are a variety of businesses that use the fair trade model to bring you products and help impoverished areas. However, One Mango Tree is the first company I have seen that actually sells products I would want to buy for a price I am willing to pay!


What does fair trade mean?


Often businesses outsource to struggling countries because they can pay much less for their services. Fair trade encourages businesses to pay a just wage to producers…wages that are more competitive with those earned in thriving economies. By maintaining honest wages, producers are able to improve the standard of living for themselves and their families.
