Fall into Fair Trade with Our New Fair Trade Resources

Posted: Wed. Oct 12, 2016

It’s Fair Trade Month! Fall into Fair Trade with us and peruse the new fair trade resources on our website. These resources are available for anyone interested in learning more about fair trade.


The section includes the latest FTF articles, such as this post discussing how fair trade is helping the UN achieve its goals, and book recommendations regarding fair trade and related topics.


Find a list of fair trade films and videos on the media page, some of which are free for online viewing. Additionally, you can check out our fair trade guides, including the FTF Fair Trade Stores and Cafes Guide where you can find stores and cafes in your state or region. Stay tuned in November for the publication of our annual Fair Trade Holiday Gift Guide.


For those interested in bringing fair trade resources to an event or displaying them in your store, this section has printouts on topics such as the History of Fair Trade, Frequently Asked Questions, and Fair Trade Myths. One of our most popular handouts is the newly redesigned FTF Fair Trade Principles.


Are you an aspiring social entrepreneur? FTF members and others have shared their experiences of starting a fair trade business. We are showcasing their tips on how to get started. We can also answer your individual questions and provide free print resources; email us at info@fairtradefederation.org to be connected to our team.


Another way to get involved is to apply to work in fair trade. Our fair trade job board features jobs, internships, and volunteer positions. Also, follow us on LinkedIn for timely notifications about professional opportunities in the world of fair trade.

The best way to learn is often in person!  All are welcome to attend the 2017 Fair Trade Federation Annual Conference, a gathering of over 250 fair trade advocates and business owners.
