Happy World Fair Trade Day

May 09, 2015

World Fair Trade Day is an initiative of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) that takes place on the second Saturday of May of each year. It is "an inclusive worldwide festival of events celebrating Fair Trade as a tangible contribution to the fight against poverty and exploitation, climate change and the economic crisis that has the greatest impact on the world’s most vulnerable populations."

At the Good Buy, we are dedicated to building local and global economies that are based on cooperation, not exploitation. You can join with us by choosing fair-trade products, which provide opportunities for small and disadvantaged producers and lead to sustainable livelihoods. All of our products are fairly or directly traded. Help us achieve our vision for a more equitable world by shopping fair trade!
