“Be an agent for change” is a call to action and it’s also the theme for World Fair Trade Day this year! If you think that there’s nothing you can do to help ensure that farmers, food producers, weavers, and other artisans are treated with fairness, dignity, and have safe and sustainable work environments, think again! Every time you choose to purchase an item that’s certified fair trade, you’re contributing to a positive ripple effect.
World Fair Trade Day was started in 2001 as a celebration of this commitment to fair trade and of the creative and hard-working people from all around the globe who make the delicious coffee, beautiful jewelry, colorful pottery, handmade cards, and more.
All Global Gifts stores will have special events throughout World Fair Trade Day on Saturday, May, 14, 2016. Come by a Global Gifts location near you and enjoy live music, fun activities, a fair trade quiz (with a coupon reward), free fair trade coffee and treat samples, and more!
