October is Fair Trade Month!
It’s time to celebrate! There are tons of ways you can join the festivities this month. The easiest (and most delicious) way is to find some fair trade food (coffee, chocolate, tea, bananas, rice, quinoa, vodka, the list goes on…) because as Fairtrade America points out, the difference between a regular banana and a fair trade banana is world changing. YOU have the power to do something amazing and change farmers lives for the better.
Fair trade organizations around the world are celebrating this month, and to help spread the word about fair trade, a lot of them are hosting giveaways. Check out some of our favorites:
