Remember my #GivingTuesday post? And I suggested one practical way to give back and be charitable is through purchasing fair trade, socially and ethically responsible products? The fair trade community had already put two and two together and semi-hijacked Giving Tuesday for Fair Tuesday! Genius, I tell you. Because it’s not really a hijack. Fair Trade should be a way of life, just as being generous and charitable should be. The two really do go hand-in-hand.
JOIN THE MOVEMENT
Whether you are an individual, organization, or a member of the press, you can join the #FairTuesday movement in two simple ways: by buying one fair trade item on Tuesday, November 27th, and by helping us spread the word about the movement on social media using hashtag #FairTuesday.
Also? While you’re at it, go to www.fairtuesday.org and scroll down a bit. There are tons of fair trade businesses being highlighted for their dedication to fair trade. I’m betting that there will be deals to be had so you can purchase with purpose while also being kind to your wallet.
