Fair Trade Your Holidays 2017

This holiday season, give gifts that give back

As the holidays approach, many of us will be heading to the store in preparation for dinner parties, gift giving, and other festivities. In this season of thanks and celebration, why not use your holiday shopping as a opportunity to give back to to farmers, workers, and artisans. Shop small and local in your community, or choose Fair Trade to support communities around the world.

There are so many amazing Fair Trade products on the market today, making it easy to find ingredients for any dinner menu and gifts for anyone on your list. And to make it even easier, we’ve rounded up a few excellent gift guides, resources, and recipes right here.
