World Fair Trade Day is May 11. And to celebrate, this year the World Fair Trade Organization is coordinating events with hundreds of retail outlets around the world.
The theme for this year’s celebration is Fair Trade Relationships, and this is an issue that hits home with us here at Earth Divas. We believe that the relationships with our artisans is the heart of our business; without their trust and craftsmanship, we wouldn’t be where we are today. This is one of the reasons why we give 100% of our profits back to them. Their skill and dedication is what makes Earth Divas possible!
We’re really excited about World Fair Trade Day, as I’m sure every fair trade retailer is. The retailers that are taking part in the celebration will be offering free product samples, talks, and demonstrations. You’ll also be able to enter to win a fair trade trip for two to Peru at the locations hosting these celebrations.
As World Fair Trade Day gets closer I’m sure that they’ll be releasing the retailers that will be hosting a celebration; surely Whole Foods, Sprouts Farmers Markets, and Earth Fare will be involved, and probably 10,000 Villages and other fair trade retailers. You can find more information about this exciting event here.
