Fair Trade Your Home Today and Everyday

Happy World Fair Trade Day! Here in the U.S. our theme is "Fair Trade Your Home" and the Fair Trade Resource Network is providing loads of resources to help you get it done. Plus you can check out a calendar of events for the official happenings throughout May.

This weekend I am visiting with a college buddy who lives in Minneapolis. We started the day in her Fair Trade home sipping a blend from local Twin Cities roaster, Peace Coffee . This fueled us for a little 5K run (not Fair Trade related exactly, but I did wear a pair of Peace socks). My own official WFTD event will be NEXT Saturday, May 15 at Fair Winds store in Fairfax, VA. More details coming!

Wherever you are and however you celebrate, thanks for celebrating the values of trade that promote equity for the people who make our products and grow our food.
