The First Fair Trade Wall Calendar

By Guest Blogger Jeff Goldman

We are happy to report that the 2010 Fair Trade Calendar was a huge success! The first calendar generated a profit which is being split between the Fair Trade Resource Network the Fair Trade Federation.

We have a limited number of calendars left, so you’ve got one last chance to order before they’re gone. They are being sold for 40% off through the end of January at: http://www.fairtraderesource.org/learn-up/buy-ftrn-publications/ Bulk discounts are also available.

The Fair Trade 2010 Calendar is the first Fair Trade wall calendar, a collaborative publication between Fair Trade Resource Network and the Fair Trade Federation, highlighting the Fair Trade movement. The full color 13.5? x 9.5? calendar features a winning photo each month from the Fair Trade Photo Competition during the fall. Fair Trade businesses, nonprofits, and activists submitted scores of photos, from which many Fair Trade supporters chose the fabulous winners. Find Fair Trade vendors in a Where to Buy Fair Trade section listing Fair Trade businesses throughout the U.S, along with Fair Trade fun facts and more! The calendar is a beautiful, practical education and awareness tool. The calendar was professionally designed by worker owned design firm Design Action and printed on environmentally friendly New Leaf paper using earth-friendly printing processes, thanks to union print shop Consolidated Printing..
