Support Moms Around the World this Mother's Day

Parker Townley May 1, 2013

Many of the farmers, workers and artisans producing the goods we consume are Moms working to support their families. This Mother’s Day you can find a great way to both honor your family here in the US as well as support a global community of mothers striving to create opportunities for their family. Take a look below at some great opportunities in the Fair Trade World to honor hardworking Mothers!
