We announce the Awaz Fair Trade Buying Club for events and office buildings for the Portland-metro featuring coffee, tea, food, kids toys, eco-clothing, stationery and gifts

For four years, we’ve been bringing the fair trade message to Portlanders and I’m excited to announce yet another way we want to help you bring fair trade into your life.

We are proud to announce the Awaz Fair Trade Buying Club for the Portland-metro that delivers high quality, ethically sourced food and everyday-use products at affordable rates, right to your door. With over ten years of experience working in the fair trade industry, we bring to you a variety of socially conscious, high quality goods that are available for your consumption direct from small producers around the world.

Awaz Fair Trade Buying Club
Natural, socially responsible and environmentally conscious goods brought to your door!
affordable ~ convenient ~ fair
Support small producers. Keep business small.

The buying club aims to help more people access the wide variety of fairly traded products available today by providing the added convenience of ordering direct from us and custom ordering. We specialize in affordable coffee, tea, food, kids toys, eco-clothing , stationery and gifts for your events, home-use , office building, daycare center, faith organization and community group.

In the 80 years of fair trade history, there has been an evolution of certified raw materials and products which are fairly traded that companies can source and offer, such as oils for cosmetics and clothing made from hemp and cotton. 
We’ve handpicked some of the best natural skin care, clothing, kids toys and more we think you should know about and are now pleased to offer them to you!
