Top 8 Fairtrade Gifts for Men

Father's Day Gifts 2019
by Bethan Bottomley

When you choose Fairtrade, you are taking a stand against exploitation and injustice in the supply chain. Here is our top pick of gifts that are great for men (and everyone!).

Fairtrade supports farming communities in developing countries by securing a fair price and safe working conditions for farmers and workers. The Fairtrade Standards protect the environment and require companies to give an additional sum of money (the Fairtrade Premium) to the farming cooperative, that they can invest in their farms and community. 

We’ve put together a list of ways you can show thanks to the man in your life, while also having a direct impact on communities around the world. Whether he is a hands-on, getting stuck-in kind of guy or more of the kick-back with a bottle of beer kind, there’s something here to suit everyone.
