It’s Happening All Over the World!

Fair Trade Month has been a busy month across both the U.S. and many other cities abroad! While we saw Amsterdam and Estonia earn Fair Trade Status, we also heard updates from towns within UK, Scotland and Canada. Every day around the globe, small steps are being made to make us more conscious of what we’re buying and selling. There are now over 1,573 Fair Trade Towns in 25 countries. Check out the latest International Fair Trade Towns Newsletter.
