Fair Trade Month

Hopefully, all of that information from our post "Evolving to Fair Trade" has sunk in. We ask you kindly, to take on our mission for you this week. In honor of Fair Trade Month, we ask you to tell three friends about Fair Trade: What is it? What does it mean? Why should you buy it? You can also tell them where you buy you Fair Trade products, and encourage them to do the same. Throughout this month, events will be held around the country to celebrate Fair Trade Month. To find out what events are being held near you, or how to start an event yourself, head to the calendar on the Fair Trade Month website!

Have you attended a Fair Trade Month event already this month? Let us know about it! Comment on this post and tell us all about the event! Thanks for sharing your knowledge of Fair Trade with the world!

Happy Fair Trade Month!!!

"In recognition of Fair Trade Month, we want to spread the word of Fair Trade Sports.

Fair Trade Sports has joined the battle against Child Labor with their practices.

Fair Trade Sports RESPECT® sports balls are certiļ¬ed for quality by several third party agencies, including NFHS, FIFA, and SA8000. Rest assured Fair Trade Sports balls are hand stitched by adults who are paid a certified living wage and ensured healthy working conditions.

Fair Trade sports balls (soccer, football, basketball, rugby, volleyball, and more) are a great eco-friendly, green gift that are a tangible proof point to educate US consumers on the benefits of Fair Trade and the fight against child labor, with all after-tax profits go to charity.

Thank you to everyone for your support and happy playing!"
