The Power of You on World Fair Trade Day

Every one of us has the power to change the world and make trade fairer - one purchase at a time. This year, celebrate World Fair Trade Day (May 10) by increasing your commitment to buy Fairtrade goods, and help us spread the word through our new global campaign, The Power of You. 

Use hashtags #WorldFairTradeDay and #PowerofYou and be sure to mention @FairtradeMarkUS

Why Fairtrade?

Smallholder farmers grow 70 percent of the world’s food, yet they represent half of the world’s hungriest people. Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. Click to learn more.
