In "Economic Justice for All," the US Bishops ask us to reflect on three questions as a way to measure the human, moral, and Christian dimensions of our economic and consumer life:
- What does the economy do for people?
- What does it do to people?
- How do people participate in it?
Fair Trade creates an opportunity for us to respond to this call every day through the choices we make as consumers. When we make the conscious decision to purchase Fair Trade items, we are putting the values of our Catholic faith and social teaching into practice. We also contribute toward realizing the vision of economic justice in our time.
