From a single partnership to a thriving ethical trade community

More than 20 years ago, Catholic Relief Services introduced fair trade to Catholics through a singular partnership with Serrv. Today, our program features education, advocacy and access to ethically produced products.

A more just world begins with you

As part of our community, you’ll discover practical ways to work for social and economic justice. Serve ethically traded coffee. Sign a petition to fight human trafficking. Host a CRS Consignment Sale at your parish. Because that’s how you lift people out of poverty and change the way business is done.

 

ETHICAL TRADE DEFINED

Ethical trade is a transparent commitment by a company to treat its workers and suppliers fairly, care for the environment and invest in the community.

Every purchase has twice the impact

With every purchase, our partners donate a percentage of the sale price to the CRS Fair Trade Fund. It’s another good reason to shop with us.
