What is fair trade? Today it has become hip and trendy to make sustainable, ecological and socially responsible choices: restaurants serve organic foods, shops sell fair-trade products and second-hand markets are popping up everywhere. But what really is fair trade? trade means the product is produced with respect to both people and the planet. Those involved in the creation of fair-trade products receive fair wages and work in safe and healthy conditions. Discovered aims to go one step further: we believe people can change their lives through business. Through the marketplace, you connect directly to the artisans and their unique handmade goods. This way, not only do you help increase the wages of the people in developing countries, but you also help guarantee that they receive the full price of the product they created.
