October is Fair Trade Month! + A Fair Trade Giveaway!

How fair am I?

BE-FAIR-v04-843x843-03

If you asked my daughters {and depending on the day} I bet they’d say I was pretty fair. But in the grand scheme of things how fair are we really? I’m been supporting Fair Trade for a while now and I do my best to buy products with the Fair Trade logo and spread the word through my blog and my friends. I’m extremely proud to be a small part of such a big movement and I’m happy to report that I see more and more Fair Trade items popping up in my grocery store which means the word is getting out!

If you’re wondering just how fair you are and how you can you help spread the word about all things Fair Trade, well, I’m about to tell ya!  Here you can learn the ins and outs of why it’s important to buy Fair Trade. Then you can stop by and take a quiz {don’t worry there’s no wrong answer ;)} then maybe watch the PSA  and tweet and/or facebook using the #BeFair hashtag to spread the word about how buying Fair Trade goods will help so many men, women, children and the community they live in.

So in celebration of October being Fair Trade Month… Fair Trade USA wants to share the love with one of you by sending you a box full of Fair Trade goodies!

Here’s what you’ll get:

goodies!

Mr. Espresso: This Fair Trade Certified™ and organic blend was specifically created for the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in Northern California. This blend has a rich, dark chocolate flavor with hints of fruit and caramel with a balanced body. A cup you’ll surely enjoy and will have you California dreaming!

Fair Trade Certified™ tea? (insert applause)

Rishi (@RishiTea): Rishi is committed to quality and expanding the awareness of tea and
its rich, inspirational tradition. They believe strongly in Fair Trade and sustainable
sourcing and you’ll taste the difference in every cup.

Alter Eco Chocolate (@AlterEcoSF): Take a few moments to enjoy this unique bar of chocolate,

become your newest chocolate obsession!

TCHO: TCHO is serious about chocolate: from knowing where their Fair Trade Certified™

chocolate. You’ll find yourself using words like “fruity,” “citrusy,” or “nutty” to describe
this flavor experience. You’ll simply have to see for yourself!

    Great giveaway! There is no link to the FT USA Facebook page within the Rafflecopter but I did like them on Facebook (though not an actual page). Let me know if there is some other way to link to them.

    Thanks!
