Purnaa Celebrates World Fair Trade Day

Purnaa is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) . May 13th is World Fair Trade Day, when we join thousands of others around the world advocating for fair trade practices for workers, climates, and communities around the world.

10 Principles of Fair Trade

Being a member of WFTO, Purnaa is committed to operating according to the 10 Fair Trade Principles. As a member of the WFTO, Purnaa receives an audit every 2 years to ensure we are being held accountable to these principles.

Climate Justice Now

This year's Fair Trade Day focus is Climate Justice. Poor communities are most affected by climate change and have the least resources to lean on to adjust as climate changes affect crops and livelihoods.

Whenever possible, Purnaa chooses sustainable materials and use organic or recycled fibers over other industry standard alternatives. We also choose to work with suppliers that can provide credentials for environmentally safe dying practices such as OEKO-Tex or GOTS. This year we have made progress moving more of our manufacturing capacity toward these more environmentally friendly materials.
