Go Bananas for Fair Trade this October!
Take The Challenge
We need you to build consumer demand for Fair Trade bananas in your community! Take the Go Bananas Challenge from noon on October 13 to noon on October 21 by organizing Fair Trade banana themed events. Campaigns will submit photos and/or number of bananas eaten at their event(s) to win cool prizes. More details of the challenge will be revealed in August, but start your ‘nanner plannin’ now!
Did you know that bananas are the world’s most popular fruit? Go Bananas for Fair Trade will help you identify where Fair Trade bananas are available in your community and, if not, how to build the strategic relationships and consumer demand needed for local supermarkets to commit to Fair Trade bananas. Join the Go Bananas for Fair Trade Initiative this October where the national celebration for Fair Trade bananas begins!
The Fair Trade Towns USA web site will host the Go Bananas for Fair Trade web page where you will find out how to locate Fair Trade bananas in your community, or how to get them into your local supermarkets. The page will also include a comprehensive campaign kit with event ideas and a planning guide, PowerPoint presentation, event posters, recipes, and many, many more resources to build awareness and demand for Fair Trade bananas in your community!
