Quick question !

¿Cómo eres como consumidor? ¿Es importante para ti comprar productos que se comercializan a través del comercio justo? ¿Cree que se presta suficiente atención al origen de los productos que consumimos?

Does this mean:

How are you as a consumer? Is it important to you that you buy products that markets through fair trade? Do you think that enough attention is given to the origen of the products that we consume?

I don't quite get the "se presta" part of the sentence.. (the last question)

Thank you !

I think you translated "se presta" just fine. For more reference, that is the "pasiva refleja", or using the reflexive verb form to form a passive tense.
If you find something wrong with my Spanish, please correct it!

Veo que algunos estudiantes de español, en algunas ocasiones, mezcláis los tratamientos de "tú" y de "usted". En la tercera pregunta, como has empezado con el tuteo en las anteriores, deberías seguir ese tratamiento: "Crees..."

"Se presta" is OK.
