Conscious Consumer this October for Fair Trade Month
Fair Trade Month, and the 2011 theme is “Every Purchase Matters”. The goal behind this years theme is to stress and illustrate how individuals can get involved with Fair Trade and what impact that can have on farmers and laborers across the globe. The month of October is dedicated to increasing consumer awareness of what Fair Trade means and what certified products are available, how to find them, and what impact they have locally and globally. The global impact can be felt as we begin to remove harmful child labor practices and slavery from the supply chain. Locally the impact can be done at the checkout, or buy working to increase the number of Fair Trade towns across the country.
