October is Fair Trade Month.
So I would like to wish you all a,
Happy Fair Trade!
In the past few months I have written a few different articles about Fair Trade and your power as a consumer. If you missed out, below you will find the links to the article.
Here at Thavin & Marcob we love Fair trade!
I do understand that it's not always convenient to purchase fair trade all of the time. It may be a budgeting issue or it may be limited availability in your area. Ultimately it doesn't really mater. The truth is you can still make a difference without spending a penny and I'm going to tell you how.
Their is lots and lots of information out their on the benefits of fair trade. As well as its importance. Goo ahead and tweet it, Facebook it, pin it, even Instagram it. Try one out or try them all. The point is to, spread the message!
2.Share with your friends
Have a conversation with your friends! Share what you know, ask what they know.
Ask any local school or church to hold a fair trade fundraiser.
One voice is a whisper a group of voices is a roar!
Ask your local shops if they would carry the fair trade items you love!
Local shops are a great resource and your trickle down consumer power would be amazing in this scenario!
Think about it, your supporting local as well as supporting fair trade communities! You are also helping others in your community access to fair trade items.
For Fair trade month make the commitment right now to do al leas one of these suggestions!
I Hope everyone has an amazing week!
