When a product carries the Fair Trade Mark it means the producers and traders have met Fair Trade standards. The standards are designed to address the imbalance of power in trading relationships, unstable markets and the injustices of conventional trade. Fair Trade enables the sustainable development and empowerment of disadvantaged producers & workers in developing countries through Fair Trade labeling. Fair Trade has over 2,700 licensees - owners of brands that source from Fair Trade producers and sell the final product with the Fair Trade Certification Mark.

The presence of what appears to be a recycling symbol does not necessarily mean that the product or material will be accepted locally. Producers are increasingly manufacturing their goods for a European or worldwide market and are obliged to include a variety of potentially misleading symbols. Consumers should also be aware that some symbols are not for their benefit, but for the waste handling and disposal industry. The internationally-recognized recycling symbol is the 3 chasing arrows icon, the Mobius Loop. Each arrow represents an aspect of a successful recycling program: collection, remanufacturing/reprocessing into a new product, and finally purchase by the consumer. The symbol is only supposed to be used on goods that are 'recyclable' or include 'recycled content', but it has no precise meaning. This symbol may be found on a broad range of products made of a variety of materials.
