Fair Trader is a volunteer run, not-for-profit co-operative owned by over 650 members based in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire. We trade with smaller, sustainable suppliers and support disadvantaged communities around the world. We also support local UK designer-makers and small businesses that make a positive impact on their communities. We sell products in-store and online and also hold events to promote ethical and sustainable living. We believe that ethical, sustainable trade is key to addressing poverty and climate change. We believe each one of us can make a difference.
