October is Fair Trade Month!
Fair Trade Month raises awareness about the importance of the fair trade movement to our global economy and promotes buying from businesses that are committed to fair trade in place of those which may harm the environment, the economy, communities, and disadvantaged individuals.
What can I do?
- Educate & spread the word about fair trade;
- Purchase from FTF members when shopping online;
- Find & support a Fair Trade Federation store or café in your local community; and
- For retailers, find an FTF wholesale supplier!
