Its hard to say how many, as many companies provide fair trade offerings, including fair trade beauty products, jewelry, food products, etc. There is continually an effort to increase the amount of sustainable efforts, especially on the part of larger groups like the Rainforest Alliance.

I wasn’t able to find a hard and fast number either. Fair Trade products, however, are vastly growing in popularity. The total amount of fair trade sales in 2008 was $4.12 billion according to the Fair Trade Federation. This was a 102% growth in the US and Canada during 2004 to 2007. Fair Trade Certified cotton increased by 94%. Fair Trade coffee sales also increased by 14%.
