Fair Trade And The Spirit of Giving

Fair Trade And The Spirit of Giving


Let's talk about gifting fair trade this holiday season.

If you’re a regular here at Orange Turtle Lane, then you’re likely aware that we opened up a Fair Trade Christmas Gift Shop full of wonderful items that we don’t typically carry throughout the year.

Our hope is to share new ideas for gifting and show that fair trade goes hand in hand with the Christmas season.

Did you realize, that shopping fair trade for Christmas gifts actually correlates with the spirit of giving? 

It truly does. We're sharing 6 ways that demonstrate how fair trade and the Christmas spirit of giving go together.


When you choose fair trade products you are demonstrating empathy for the well-being of the artisans and workers in the developing countries we source from, aligning with the spirit of caring and compassion.


Purchasing fair trade supports communities and social programs which reflects the generosity associated with the holiday season.


As  you select unique, handcrafted fair trade gifts, it shows thoughtfulness in choosing presents that carry a deeper meaning and connection.

Ethical Consideration

Fair trade gift giving reflects an ethical and conscious choice, which is in line with the spirit of giving with integrity and moral values.

Impactful Giving

Fair trade products have a tangible, positive impact on the lives of those who create them, and by your purchase you are illustrating the spirit of making a meaningful difference.

Global Perspective

When you support fair trade, you extend your giving beyond your immediate circle, embracing a global perspective and reinforcing the idea that giving knows no borders!

Do you see the correlation? 

In essence, shopping fair trade for your Christmas gifts enhances the spirit of giving by encompassing ethical, meaningful and impactful elements that go beyond traditional gift-giving and contribute to a more compassionate and connected world.

We think this is pretty great!

And, while it may take a small amount of extra effort to find the fair trade products you are looking for, we hope you can see that it is well worth your time and effort. 

Imagine the impact if everyone shopping for the holidays this year, chose fair trade for just a few of their gifts. Not only would beautiful gifts be exchanged but life changing support for the artisans and their communities would continue through fair wages, safe working environments, education opportunities and healthcare.

Our hope is to encourage a small change in shopping that makes a big difference in the world.

And, don't forget to visit our Fair Trade Christmas Gift Shop to find some lovely gift  and stocking stuffer ideas!
