Great news: Fair Trade Certification coming to clothing in the USA July 8, 2010

I’m so excited today, because I’ve been waiting and anticipating this for more than a year. The first of my wholesale suppliers (with others to follow soon, I hope!) are now selling Fair Trade Certified clothing! This means that the next batch of MotherTongues clothing will come with the Fair Trade Certified hang tag from TransFair USA!

TransFair USA is the official Fair Trade labeling organization for goods in the USA – think coffee, chocolate, soccer balls. But this is the first time that the whole supply chain for t-shirts have been certified, and that the clothing itself will have Fair Trade certification.
