Is Your Halloween Fair Trade?

31st October, 2012 - Posted by Carleen Pickard - No Comments

We certainly hope so! For 31 days we sent out 31 ways to Fair Trade your Halloween and celebrate Fair Trade Month.

We hope that you had as much fun as we did eating Fair Trade bananas, hosting movie screenings, baking delicious Fair Trade goodies, recycling Halloween costumes, and giving out Fair Trade chocolates.

We especially liked Equal Exchange’s video about the Potong Cooperative Tea Garden in India. With your help, Equal Exchange was able to donate 10,000 tea bushes to farmers in India.

If you haven’t taken advantage of our Fair Trade Month promotion, sign up now! Join Global Exchange for $35/year and we’ll send you a gorgeous customized Global Exchange tote bag from Handmade Expressions women’s cooperative in India, a No-Nonsense Guide to Democracy, Globalization or International Development and a bag of Equal Exchange chocolates!

Also, celebrate Dia de los Muertos and honor loved ones. Get tips on how to Build Your Own Fair Trade Dia de los Muertos Altar.

Happy Fair Trade Halloween!
