Fair Trade Trends was founded and is currently maintained by Katy Niglas.
Katy Niglas is a passionate Fair Trade advocate and writer and a visionary educator and curriculum designer. Katy first learned about child slavery in the chocolate industry through a sidebar in a college botany textbook. This one paragraph changed the way she saw the world. Katy continued to study, write, and teach about Fair Trade while earning her MA in literature. She spent the next decade teaching high school English and advising Peace and Justice and Fair Trade clubs, educating hundreds about the importance of labor justice. Along the way, she founded Fair Trade Trends to help connect people with ethical products that might not be available in their local communities.
