The holidays are just around the corner! Time to make your list, check it twice, and start finding gifts for all of the important people in your life. And while those homemade sweaters you gave out last year were memorable (and even fit a few people), why not make your gifts Fair Trade this year and extend the goodwill one step further- to the people behind our favorite products?
When you choose gifts marked with the Fair Trade Certified seal, you’re saying “yes” to:

It’s just not environmental advocates who are talking about sustainable seafood these days. Concerned chefs, supermarket executives and suppliers are taking action to ensure that seafood is responsibly sourced and served.
We are proud to announce that as of year-end 2015, 77% of Safeway’s fresh and frozen seafood and 99% of private label frozen packaged seafood met our Responsible Sourcing Commitment. Since setting this ambitious goal in 2010, Safeway (including Carrs, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Vons, and Pavilions) has transitioned over 29 million pounds of seafood to environmentally responsible sources.
