Trade as One, a company that makes it easy for consumers to build ethical products into their lifestyles, is launching a one-of-a-kind fair trade food subscription service. Designed to make it convenient for today’s busy consumers to buy ethically, Trade as One’s service delivers a box of healthy, natural, fairly traded products to peoples’ door. This is a simple way to transform the lives of the poor as every item in the curated selection is produced by people in marginalized situations, both domestically and abroad.
Delivered every three months, the box contains twelve to fifteen fairly traded consumables - all full size. Each season’s curated box is unique and will typically include staples such as rice and quinoa, kitchen essentials such as olive oil and spices, as well as unique baking mixes and luxuries such as chocolate. A body care item is often included as well, such as shea butter soap, or coconut oil lotion.
The box may be specified as gluten-free if preferred. An additional coffee option is also available. Subscriptions are available from Trade as One. By providing in-depth product information in each box, Trade as One connects the consumer even more deeply with the stories of the people and the land from which the products come.
CEO Nathan George is presenting a workshop about living simply and buying ethically at The Justice Conference in Philadelphia, Feb. 22 and 23.
About Trade As One
Trade as One connects people’s conscience with their purchasing behavior by making it meaningful, fun, and convenient to build ethical products into their lifestyle. By connecting poor farmers and artisans with American consumers, Trade as One offers people more power to change the world, but not through charity. Instead, it offers a quarterly delivery of fair trade products that provide dignified jobs to people who would otherwise be marginalized and living in severe poverty. The company was founded by Nathan George seven years ago and is headquartered in Santa Cruz, California.
