I missed it. Nuts.

But we can all support fair trade year-round. The Fair Trade Resource Network is a great place to get started. Also check out TransFairUSA, which certifies products that comply with strict international standards and thereby promote “a more equitable and sustainable trade system for producers.”

Coming soon: Fair Trade Month in October. Start lobbying your local organic markets and stores to plan promotions.

What’s on your shopping list?

  1. Might I suggest adding a Fair Trade soccer ball to your shopping list?

    We have the first full line of Fair Trade sports balls for the US, including soccer, volleyball, rugby, and more. Lots of information on our blog: http://www.fairtradesports.com.

  2. An interesting addition to the shopping cart, Scott! I don’t usually think of a soccer ball as something edible like chocolate or coffee, but I’m nevertheless happy to support a variety of fair trade products. Here’s to your success!
