With an estimated 300 million people working in the cotton sector worldwide, many farmers and workers live below the poverty line.
Fairtrade Canada was created to give fair pricing and premiums to these farmers in order to provide more stable incomes and give the promise of sustainability year after year. Fairtrade encourages sustainable cotton production through establishing economic, social and environmental standards that protect farmers, reinvest in farming communities and support local education for farmers.

Chetna Organic has put in place measures to help these farmers with sustainable farming and much more. Not only have the standards set by Chetna Organic ensured fair wages and premiums for farmers, but the organization has also helped farmers by investing in infrastructure projects intended to create income generating opportunities for co-ops and smallholder farmers. Things like construction of mills and nurseries, purchasing of equipment for farmers to use in harvesting and distribution of non-GM seed kits have all contributed to the improved success of Indian farmers.
