National Fair Trade Month is an annual event each October that celebrates and raises awareness for Fair Trade practices. Fair Trade has many moving parts that span the globe, from the coffee we drink to the clothes we wear. Fair Trade Month is spearheaded by Fair Trade USA, the non-profit organization that is responsible for certifying Fair Trade products in the United States.
Why Shop Fair Trade?
There are countless reasons to opt for Fair Trade goods, not only in October, but every time you go shopping. Fair Trade producers must adhere to strict guidelines regarding workplace safety, environmental conservation, water access, food safety and child labor laws. As a result, the goods are better for you, better for the earth and provide a better life for those who produce them.

What Can I Do?
Every Purchase Matters. Some of the most common Fair Trade goods include coffee, chocolate and sugar, but they range from apparel & home goods to seafood and wine. Even by just dedicating a small monthly percentage of your total purchases to Fair Trade goods, you can make a difference in the lives of millions, support the environment and enjoy a better quality of product every day. Shop Fair Trade Often!
