What is 'fair trade'?
The EcoSponge is Green Oils only fair trade product, fair trade doesn't apply to things produced in 'developed' countries, where workers rights are already high, or products from large factories where a different set of labour codes are applied. Fair trade applies generally to processed farm products, and things made by hand. Like coffee, or little wood toys for example.
