I’m not one for sappy posts, but yesterday was the most Monday-est Monday ever. When I have days that kick my ass, I try not dwell on the struggle/failure, but instead take time to reset and reassess. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thankful for this lady who shared @theakaziproject vision with me a year ago & thankful for my “reset” day spent working on something I believe in to its core. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also, can’t wait for our new @cobobottle to arrive so we can take some more, so not posed, photos with our favorite, sustainable water bottles 🤩 #hydrationiskey#notsponsored#butwouldnthateit
October is Fair Trade Month!
Fair Trade Month raises awareness about the importance of the fair trade movement to our global economy as well as promotes buying from businesses that are committed to fair trade in place of those which may harm the environment, the economy, communities, and disadvantaged individuals.
Throughout the month, we encourage you to find fair trade and help others do the same! #ndotozaafrika#fairtrade#fairtrademonth#findfairtrade.

Today on the blog I’m chatting about looking beyond Fair Trade Certified! Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about Fair Trade Certified products. I buy certified products all the time. I think it’s great that there are third parties that can verify the ethics of a brand. And I believe they should be compensated for their time. I think their stamp of approval on products is helpful to consumers because it makes it easy for shoppers to identify products that are positively impacting the world. However, I think it’s important for consumers to know that there are so many small brands that are not certified that DO meet fair trade standards. This is one of the reasons I started my blog. I think consumers tend to be pretty well aware of the larger socially responsible brands (that probably have the resources to get certified), but don’t always take the time to discover the small ones. The certification symbol allows consumers to quickly check a box in their mind, “Hey this product is doing good” which is great, but for smaller brands that don’t have that third party certification stamp of approval it can be tricky.
I try to make it easy here at The Honest Consumer and with @giveadamngoods wholesale program to discover new, smaller brands that are socially responsible. I do my research, I speak to founders on the phone to verify the ethics of their work and build honest relationships. If I had the funds I’d love to go travel and see their work first hand to report back, but sadly that’s not in the budget….yet. Maybe one day…after I can actually afford to pay myself a fair wage.
