Celebrate World Fair Trade Day May 9

Share this on:

Fair Trade certification ensures that:  small scale farmers and artisans are paid a fair price for their products; human rights and child labor laws are strictly enforced; and environmental sustainability is a priority.  Special events have been planned around the world to celebrate this sustainable marketplace where you can participate in The World’s Largest Fair Trade Coffee Break, Soccer Games, Drum Circles, Chocolate Tastings, music concerts, fashion shows, and receive discounts & free products.

This year’s theme is “Everything Is Better When It’s Fair”.  Each time you purchase products that carry the Fair Trade label, such as coffee & tea, wine, chocolate, sugar, olive oil, bananas, flowers, and crafts & gifts, you are doing something that makes a difference.  To learn more or to look for events planned in your area, visit Green America or the Fair Trade Resource Network.
