World Village Fair Trade Mobile
WORLD VILLAGE FAIR TRADE Mobile is one of our programs that provides the Long Island, New York community with the latest trends in Fair Trade. We sell jewelry, coffee, chocolate, musical instruments, accessories, children's toys and home decor from all over the world. All the proceeds from these sales is then given to support our orphan programs around the world. Producer groups and growers are able to provide a better life for their families because they receive fair wages, support, resources, loans, and training.
For 12 years, our Fair Trade mission was located at the WORLD VILLAGE FAIR TRADE MARKET, a full-time, full-year storefront in Hampton Bays, NY. The people who volunteered to begin this mission were people who supported Fair Trade as a concrete way to bring relief to artisans and growers in the developing world who were living in severe poverty. This could not have happened without these special people who volunteered and we are grateful for their efforts because they have helped thousands of marginalized producer groups from over 30 countries.
In November and December of 2015 we were given a space to have a pop-up store at Hidden Ridge Plants. We sold Fair Trade there from 2015 until 2018 and will soon be opening up a partnership with Suffolk County Community College for Fair Trade to grow with the students and faculty.
We were members of the national Fair Trade Federation in the USA from 2003 until 2018, comprised of producers, growers, wholesalers and retailers who agree on nine principles covering Fair Trade issues. Our Fair Trade products can now be found at special events, church and craft fairs, Justice in a Box, special orders, and soon to be launched, our online store. We are always looking for new venues to bring Fair Trade. Wherever we go, Fair Trade products are loved and cherished by those who see them, not only for their fine workmanship, but also because people throughout our world are being paid more fairly and the environment is protected.
Be a part of this exciting global movement by volunteering or inviting us to come to your location and always ask the stores you shop in to carry Fair Trade products such as teas, coffees, chocolate, and sugar.
