You, our customers are the agents for change, the game-changers for so many people in the developing world by voting with your dollars and choosing quality items that are hand made, farmed or created in safe and fair working conditions. We are celebrating you on this Fair Trade Day, Saturday, May 14 with a 20% off 1 item* discount. Without our loyal customers the Fair Trade movement wouldn't have moved anywhere.
Fair trade is taking off. After recently attending the Fair Trade Federation Conference it was inspiring to see all the new Fair Trade business that are cropping from retail to wholesale. People are starting businesses that benefit people on abandoned tea plantations in India, beekeepers in the forests of Zambia, ceramic painters in Tunisia, coffee farmers in Haiti, and felters in Kyrgyzstan. Large companies like Ben and Jerry's ice cream is now sourcing their sugar, cocoa, vanilla, coffee and bananas from Fair Trade producers.
With your support over the years we have expanded our reach too. Buying from more fair trade suppliers and expanding into new lines like soap, fashion and olive oil.
Please join us on Fair Trade Day, tell us what Fair Trade means to you, make a hand to put on our wall as a visual reminder of all the support we have behind us. Thank you for holding us up and give yourself a little pat on the back.
