Welcome to October, everyone. It is hard to believe that fall is among us, especially since it has been almost 80 degrees over the last few days in New York! Not only does October represent the start of fall, but it also marks the tenth annual Fair Trade month. We are happy to partner up with Fair Trade USA to promote this important message.
This year’s campaign is all about practicing fairness. Simple things such as turning off a light when you leave a room, giving gas money on a road trip and using your turn signal when switching lanes are all ways you can be fair every day. You can extend these fair practices in the grocery store by purchasing Fair Trade products. Just look for the Fair Trade USA logo! When you purchase a Fair Trade item, you are guaranteeing that the farmers are receiving fair pay for their hard work. So why not make this easy switch this month and Buy Fair to Be Fair.
