Now we know Fair Trade is an exceptional idea and a great innovation in any industry, but Emma Watson’s involvement with People Tree has spread the word out not only on People Tree or fair trade fashion, but on Fair Trade as a whole! Back in 2009 news broke out that a collaboration project was hatched between People Tree and actress Emma Watson. It turned out to be a clothing line, purely organic and fair traded, with all the profits going to charitable causes supporting farmers and workers everywhere in the world. Most specially benefiting from this is the developing world. That alone is a good cause, good for the fight against poverty and good for the fight against unfair trading practices. Emma’s line has achieved great success with the sales and profits coming in at a faster rate than expected. People Tree and Emma decided to let the people to ask ‘Emma Watson’ questions on the significance of fair trade and its influence or effectiveness to work. Now Part 1 of Emma’s answers to these questions are now available for you.
