USA: October is Fair Trade month
by Redaktion (comments: 0)
October is Fair Trade Month and this year TransFair USA's campaign will be more exciting than ever with special offers, fun facts and ways one can get involved with a range of Fair Trade Certified licensees, retailers and partner organizations. This year’s theme is "Every Purchase Matters" and TransFair USA will be asking to vote on the aspect of Fair Trade that matters most; whether it’s fighting poverty, protecting the environment, building sustainable business, empowering women or supporting education. One can share the vote with family and friends online and help spread the word about how Fair Trade is helping people.
Each day the Fair Trade Month website will feature a different Fair Trade Month partner and highlight their campaigns to educate consumers and supporters. There will also be fun and easy actions throughout the month to make a difference for Fair Trade far beyond every day purchases. TransFair USA has a goal of 1000 donations for Fair Trade, 100 new Fair Trade Town campaigns, 200 Fair Trade Month events, 60,000 supporters on Facebook, and 8000 followers on Twitter.
