Peace & Justice Store

Fair Trade. Local. Educational.

Economic Revolution

Every product you consume is brought to you by human hands. From planting seeds or manufacturing, to packaging and imports, to the employee stocking shelves in your local grocery store. But what if you found out that those hands were being forced to work? What if your favorite chocolate company relies on child labor for harvesting their cocoa? Or that the factory workers sewing your clothes are harassed in their workplace? Or farm workers growing your food are fired for becoming pregnant?

Unfortunately, there is not a whole lot of accountability for large corporations that control industries of mass production.

This is why we are committed to providing alternatives to exploitative trade systems known for exploitation and human rights abuses.

In our retail and online store, our products reflect and support the mission of the Peace & Justice Center. Therefore, we focus on fair trade, local, and educational products. We partner with small producers in the Global South, and actively work to cultivate long-term trading relationships as a way to alleviate poverty, ensure human rights, and protect the environment.

This unique shopping experience will bring you closer to the humans who make your products and inspire you to engage in the economic revolution

El Billete Imports

Working with the Peace and Justice Store has been a tremendous blessing for me and my Ecuadorian friends. I started my little enterprise 10 years ago, and it was the P&J Store’s willingness to takesome hats, mittens, and tagua jewelry on consignment that inspired me to go back the following year and buy more. The PJC mission has inspired me to seek out social and cultural programs in Ecuador that I assist with money, labor, and love.  

Our Commitment

Since 1983, our store has functioned as an economic justice program. Through education and participation in the Fair Trade Movement, we shed light on exploitative production industries that rely on modern slavery, marginalization, and dehumanization.

We believe that people and the planet should always come before profit, which is why we are committed to providing an ethical way to consume. Our goal is to bring you closer to incredible artisans and growers around the world, local Vermont artists and authors, and a better understanding of social justice movements.
