Parvin Dabas says, “My family comes from a farming village and I’ve seen the challenges that farmers face. Today I spoke with Mr. Kukade, a Virdharba cotton farmer, about how fair trade transforms the lives of farmers like him by ensuring that they get a fairer deal. It’s inspiring to know that by doing something as simple as choosing a Shop for Change certified t-shirt we can all do our bit to make a difference.”
Kishore Kukade, cotton farmer and Vice Chairman of COAPCL says, “Though this is the busiest time of the year for a farmer, I was pleased to come from my village to lend my voice to the fair trade movement. My message to consumers I met is simple – now that you know how choosing Shop for Change certified garments makes a difference I hope that you’ll make the choice next time you shop.”
Shop for Change Fair Trade is an NGO committed to ensuring a better deal for cotton farmers. The Shop for Change Mark is an independent guarantee that small-scale cotton farmers received a fair deal for their hard work.
