An initiative of The World Fair Trade Organization (www.wfto.com), World Fair Trade Day is an annual global celebration occurring each May. Celebrations bring consumers and businesses, nonprofit organizations, churches, student groups, and advocates together to host thousands of events worldwide.
Fair World Project is celebrating World Fair Trade Day by organizing a joint promotion with some of our favorite mission driven brands that are dedicated to fair trade throughout their entire supply chains. Brands include: Alaffia, Alter Eco, Dr. Bronner?s Magic Soaps, Equal Exchange, Guayaki Yerba Mate, and Maggie?s Organics. Look for special promotions from these manufacturers at natural product retailers this May.
