Celebrate World Fair Trade Day with Us!

6th May, 2009 - Posted by Tex Dworkin - 1 Comment

Saturday May 9th is World Fair Trade Day, and we’re looking forward to it. There’s lots going on around this special day. Here’s just a taste:

  • Donate to FTRN just by shopping! Global Exchange is donating 10% of all sales on World Fair Trade Day to the Fair Trade Resource Network, to help their efforts in educating consumers about the importance of Fair Trade. So if you’re planning to shop online at Global Exchange, Saturday is a great time to do it.
  • Help set the World’s Largest Coffee Break Record! Join others in the effort to surpass last year’s record and take back the record from Fairtrade Finland, who organized 50,000 people last year. Nothing wrong with a little healthy competition, right?
  • A little World Fair Trade Gift for You: Do you need a special gift for someone? Global Exchange Online Store is giving you $10 to spend on orders of $50 or more, now through World Fair Trade Day May 9th. Simply enter wftd09 in the coupon code during checkout to receive your savings.

    Fair trade is a great concept and needs to be fully understood by everyone. Of course celebrating it on a global level is a great way to popularize it – http://climatarians.org. People also need to be educated about the benefits of fair trade and how this affects our day to day lives and the lives of millions of people whose faces we would never get to see.

    Lets be fair.
