With October being fair trade month, we thought it would be nice to share a few simple ways you can celebrate!
— SHOP FAIR TRADE —
I know - that's a given, but knowing where your dollar is going to end up is very important. As a consumer, it's your responsibility to make sure you research a company before purchasing from them. Looking for fair trade certified companies is a great way to know right off the bat that they're motivated by helping others in less fortunate circumstances. This applies not only to food but clothing and home goods as well. Below is a list of some of our favorite fair trade companies:
— TAKE TO SOCIAL MEDIA —
We live in a time where people are easily influenced by what they see on social media. An easy way to show your fair trade support is to share it on these platforms. You don't have to be a social media guru to do this - simply take a picture of your fair trade purchase and share it! The more people get used to seeing the labels and knowing the term fair trade - the more likely they'll recognize it when they're out shopping!
— HAVE A FAIR TRADE HALLOWEEN PARTY —
Everyone loves a good Halloween party so why not make even better by having fair trade goodies and decor? You can find some fun and delicious Halloween chocolate from brands like EMVI Chocolate, Equal Exchange, and Divine Chocolate. And of course, you can always count on us to have cute and ethically made decorations!
