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

Looking for videos, memes, prayers and more? We’ve got them!

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.
