By supporting Fair Trade products and companies we can directly promote positive global change that impacts millions of lives. There are so many ways that we can incorporate Fair Trade products into our everyday routines but here are a few fun and easy ways that you can celebrate Fair Trade month with your friends and families:

1-Support Fair Trade Certified Chocolate for Halloween

It’s about that time of the year to get ready for the neighborhood trick-or-treaters!
Purchasing ethically made chocolate translates to supporting safe working environments and fair wages for the people that work so hard to make candy for all of us to enjoy on Halloween…and let’s be honest, year round too!

Coffee farmers are the unsung heros of our lives. Can you imagine what it would be like without a cup of Joe to get your day started? No way, right?! Investing in Fair Trade Certified coffee ensures that the coffee farmers responsible for your much needed caffeine fix are able to support their families because they were paid a fair wage for their products. Be the office superstar and introduce your favorite Fair Trade Certified coffee to your co-workers for an afternoon pick me up that they will love!

3-Become a Fair Trade Social Ambassador

Whether you prefer Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or another platform, social media is a wonderful way to showcase your support for Fair Trade practices.

6-Use a Recycled Fair Trade Tote for Trick-Or-Treating

No Halloween costume is complete without the right trick-or-treat bag. Support recycling and Fair Trade products this holiday and help spread the word about Fair Trade products as you go door to door with your favorite tote. Our personal favorite is the Malia Designs Recycled Feed Bag in Orange which is perfect for Halloween!
