Fair & Social – acting fairly brings people together

The market for fair trade and socially produced goods has been growing for years. Where a product comes from, how it is manufactured and traded, is becoming increasingly important. With the Fair Trade Market, which has been an integral part since 2014, the Bazaar Berlin takes this development into account. For this year’s event, the fair theme world will be named Fair & Social expanded to include offers from social organizations such as workshops and manufacturers as well as social and non-profit companies and organizations. The varied offer ranges from fair produced fashion from Cambodia over a German-Ghanaian revolution in the chocolate world up to fair silver jewelry from Mexico as Bags and rucksacks made from old cement sacksmade as part of a social project in Kenya. Offer information about fair and social engagement Greenpeace and the Fair trade alliance, as well as the “Fair Rally!” from Engagement Global.

Focus on social responsibility

In the almost 60-year tradition of the Bazaar Berlin, linking good business with social responsibility is always a central value and an important concern. This can be seen to this day in the extraordinary commitment of the exhibitors and the special products from all over the world.

This year for the first time at the Bazaar Berlin: ‘Atfaluna Society for Deaf Children’ from Gaza. The organization was founded in 1998 to offer jobs to deaf women and men and to strengthen them economically. Today, high-quality Palestinian handicrafts such as hand-painted wood or ceramics as well as embroidery on clothing and textiles are created in the factories. The products are handcrafted by skilled artisans – men and women with hearing impairments who work in Atfaluna Crafts production workshops.

In support of the initiative “Defend Afghan Women`s Rights“who work for women in Afghanistan, the team from Chapati Design from Berlin thought about something special: To raise awareness of the situation of women in Afghanistan and to collect donations, Chapati designed the # Chapati_Humanity-Hoodie. The GOTS certified hoodie made of organic cotton will be presented at the Bazaar Berlin. The proceeds from the sale go entirely to the work of “Defend Afghan Women`s Rights”.

Catwalk for “fair fashion”

On Friday and Saturday (November 5th and 6th) Hall 19 will be transformed into a catwalk: the “Faire Mode” fashion show will show exclusively fair-trade and fair-trade fashion here on both days at 2pm and 5pm.
