Celebrating World Fair Trade Day this Saturday!

Prosperity Candle celebrates World Fair Trade Day with our fair trade gifts that give back

We have a big weekend, ahead! Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 13th, and World Fair Trade Day is on Saturday, May 12th. World Fair Trade Day is a day to celebrate the achievements of the fair trade community to move away from “business as usual” to create more just and equitable ways of trading internationally. This means better pay for producers, less environmental damage, more transparency, engagement of marginalized communities, and long-term trading relationships that help empower instead of exploit.

Learn more about what fair trade is all about here:

Our work was founded on the principles of fair trade and we’re proud to be well on our way to becoming a fair trade member with the World Fair Trade Organization! We’ll keep you posted on our progress – hopefully soon you’ll see the fair trade logo on our homepage, providing us with a 3rd party verification of our practices. Thank you to our partner UMCOR for supporting us as we become a fair trade member.

So how will you celebrate World Fair Trade Day this Saturday? Take a look at this list of events compiled by the Fair Trade Resource Network happening throughout North America for something to do in your community. Also consider taking a look at this World Fair Trade Day website for more information. And if you’re shopping for Mom or taking her out for coffee or tea, consider celebrating World Fair Trade day at the same time with fair trade coffee, tea or chocolate!
