Did you know October is Fair Trade Month?
Global Exchange joins allies this month (and every month!) to encourage more people to choose Fair Trade products because we have seen the power that Fair Trade has in transforming the lives of farmers and artisans across the world.
But don't take our word for it. Come along on one of the many Fair Trade focused Reality Tours we have and see for yourself the far-reaching impacts of the Fair Trade movement.
Work side by side with workers in the cocoa or coffee harvest in the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua, visit with Fair Trade indigenous artisans in Guatemala, celebrate the Fair Olive Harvest in Palestine, and visit with a women’s Fair Trade weaving cooperative in Costa Rica.
To start promoting Fair Trade here at home, take part in our Fair Trade your Halloween campaign. This October, we bring you 31 days of fun ideas and activities that will have you eating Fair Trade bananas, hosting movie screenings, baking delicious Fair Trade goodies, recycling Halloween costumes, and giving out Fair Trade chocolates to trick-or-treaters.
You can also order a Halloween Fair Trade Action Kit so that you are fully equipped with the resources necessary to educate and take action this month.
Happy Fair Trade Month!
