World Fair Trade Day

May 12, 2018

We celebrate World Fair Trade Day annually on the second Saturday in May. This year's theme is "Live fair, one product at a time."

Join us for an inclusive worldwide festival of events! Choose to support the economic empowerment of small producers, gender equality in workplaces, and responsible production practices.

We are proud to amplify the World Fair Trade Organization's efforts to ensure trade continues to benefit the most vulnerable, delivering sustainable livelihoods by developing opportunities for small and disadvantaged producers.

Get Involved

Fair Trade is not about charity or handouts. Put simply, it’s a process of making a truly fair exchange for the goods we buy. Learn more by watching a short video and then follow the "fair trade" tag on our blog for our recent posts to keep yourself in the know with what's happening in the fair trade universe.

Choose to be fair

Evaluate the products that you routinely buy and see where they are produced. What does the supply chain look like? Help bring awareness to fair trade this weekend by posting on your personal social media accounts what fairly traded goods you love to support, and hashtag them with #LiveFair and #FairTradeDay. Encourage friends and family to think about where and how their goods are sourced.
