Fair Trade Vs. Buy Local FAIR TRADE VS. BUY LOCAL DEBATE: An Ethical Shopper's Dilemma

Another gift giving season is upon us and it's time to decide on a shopping strategy. In one ear you're encouraged to shop locally, in the other ear you hear about the benefits of choosing Fair Trade gifts. So now it's time to decide…buy local or Fair Trade?

It's important to note that choosing Fair Trade products can actually help your local merchants survive in this sluggish economy. Prices for cheap imports made in sweatshop factories outside of the US are usually so low that local merchants have difficulty competing on price. So during a time when consumers are looking to cut costs wherever possible, cheap knock offs made in sweatshops often outsell locally made products, even though the quality is drastically lower.

Music has the capacity to transcend all borders and languages. Over the years, Putumayo World Music has introduced audiences to collections of exceptional music from around the globe, proving that no matter how diverse, all people share this common bond.

This holiday, you can check a lot of names off your gift list by choosing Putumayo CDs. Global Exchange stores are proud to offer a variety of Putumayo titles, including One World, Many Cultures and Music from the Chocolate Lands. Selections at each of our stores vary, so call ahead if you're looking for a particular title, or check out what our Online Store has to offer, and remember to keep on rocking in the free world!
