Fair Trade Week :: Box of Goodies Giveaway

Post image for Fair Trade Week :: Box of Goodies Giveaway

by Amber on October 18, 2012

The other day I regaled you with my Fair Trade Breakfast Bread. It was the start of “Fair Trade Week” here on Bluebonnets & Brownies.

Let’s talk more about Fair Trade Certified products, shall we? For a start, this is the logo you should look for:

Fair Trade Certified products, of course, guarantee the farmers and families that work to grow and harvest the crops we rely on a fair price for the work they do. But it’s not just about obtaining a fair price.

Buying Fair Trade Certified Products Guarantees:

  • Fair Prices
  • No GMOs
  • No Hazardous Chemicals
  • No Child Labor


Check out this video that can explain it better than I ever could:

Now that you know how awesome Fair Trade Certified products are for the organization behind them, how about we send you some?

    After hearing terrible stories of the coffee trade I make sure all my coffee is fair trade. If it’s organic too that’s a bonus. Green mountain is a great example.

    I’ve bought mostly Green Mountain Coffee that is Fair Trade so I would have to say this is my favorite. I should have bought more of the Fair Trade Island Coconut. I’m all out! I’m now going to buy the Fair Trade bananas. I’ve been buying the conventional ones, but since watching the video and looking at the website, I’ll switch to Fair Trade.
