Happy Fair Trade Month!
Congrats Catherine! You are the winner of the Fair Trade giveaway!
Thank you so much to all of you who entered, there were some really amazing comments.
This month is Fair Trade Month! No one wants to buy a chocolate bar made with child labor. When you see a product with the Fair Trade Certified™ label, you know that farmers got a fair deal for their hard work, have access to healthcare and education, and practice sustainable farming. The result is a product you can feel empowered by; you can truly make a difference with your dollar!
To earn the Fair Trade certification, farmers must meet the rigorous standards. This certification cover things like safe working conditions, no child labor, elimination of harmful chemicals, a voice in the workplace, equal rights for women, no GMOs and more. In many ways, Fair Trade is like a global farmers market. It’s a way to get closer to the people and places that make our products, and a way to support this Fair, eco, and fully transparent system!
Fair Trade USA now certifies over 30 different product categories. You can find everything from Fair Trade cocoa and sugar, to tea, spices, wine, produce, flowers, clothing and even home goods.
So in honor of Fair Trade Month we have a fabulous giveaway featuring a variety of new Fair Trade goodies.
