Why Fair Trade?
At Coriaria (creators of My Mindful Mat™) we are mindful of the impact each of our products has on the environment, on our society, and especially on your family. In our “Mindful Products” series, we share with you the reasoning behind many of our product decisions. This week we discuss: Why Fair Trade?
My Mindful Mat™ cases and mats are Fair Trade certified. What does this mean and why does it matter?
