fair trade
1969: the 1st fair trade shop – ‘worldshop’ - opens in the Netherlands...

... only 2 years later, the country hosted about 120 shops selling products from small and marginalized producers of the world’s Southern hemisphere:
  • today, about 4,000 Fair Trade organisations operate in over 60 countries worldwide;


  • within Europe, at least 2,500 ‘worldshops’ offer fairly traded products and campaign for a fairer world trade system. Moreover, about 100,000 volunteers are actively involved in their activities.
