3 Easy Ways to Celebrate Fair Trade Month

Courtney Lang September 30, 2013




BE-FAIR-v04-843x843-05October is here, and you know what that means.  It’s time for the much-awaited month-long celebration of Fair Trade. 

This year Fair Trade USA’s  campaign theme is Buy Fair. Be Fair.  The goal is simple: increase awareness and demand for Fair Trade Certified products and deepen the impact of Fair Trade in farming communities around the world.  The success of this year’s campaign depends on the support from all of our partners, and for that we thank you in advance.  This Fair Trade Month is going to be the best yet.

3 simple ways that you can celebrate!


1. Visit our campaign website BeFair.org to find out which city is the Fairest city in the United States.  Then take the quiz to see how you measure up.

2. Use one or two of our suggested Facebook and Twitter posts and graphics to spread the word online.

3. Watch and share the newest Fair Trade video: Kids explain Fair Trade to their parents.

Told you it was easy!
