Fair Trade Tea Plucker

As many of you may know, October is Fair Trade Month.  With another October fast approaching, we wanted to share a few ways that you can help promote Fair Trade in your community.  Of course, we strongly encourage you to buy Fair Trade tea, but Fair Trade matters across a wide variety of products, including coffee, chocolate, vanilla, sugar, honey, fruit, rice and wine.  Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Learn more about Fair Trade and how it makes a difference.
  • Vote with your dollar – buy Fair Trade Certified goods wherever possible.
  • Ask retailers in your community to carry Fair Trade Certified products.
  • Introduce new audiences to Fair Trade Certified products – at home, at work, in school, on campus, at your place of worship, etc.
  • Give Fair Trade Certified products as gifts.
  • Get involved in Fair Trade – host a party, volunteer, donate, etc.

Knowing that Fair Trade helps improve the standard of living for millions across the globe makes Fair Trade Month an easy holiday to celebrate!
