What is World Fair Trade Day 2013 – and when is it?

World Fair Trade Day 2013

World Fair Trade Day 2013


World Fair Trade Day this year is on Saturday 11th May, 2013.

It is a global campaign for the Fair Trade Movement and will involve connecting Fair Trade producers in the developing world with consumers in the “western world” and is endorsed by the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO).

Why not be part of something big on the 11th May?
Afterall, what better time is there to renew your committment to Fair Trade?

People all over the world will celebrate by having Fairtrade breakfasts in their homes, schools, businesses, places of worship and communities – in fact, just about everywhere!
Fair Trade will be celebrated with food, live music, campaigning and an attempt to break the Guinness record.
Last year in the UK, a quarter of a million people got involved.

Let’s make it a wonderful day to raise awareness about making trade fair and the need to support farmers, workers and producers in the developing world.

You can get more ideas on what to get up to on the Fairtrade Foundation website.

“Take a step” for Fairtrade in 2013 and have a great World Fair Trade Day - Paul at THE FAIR TRADE STORE.
