We Are Thankful For Fair Trade

November is a month that brings to mind the word “thanksgiving.” Yet with all the political, economic, and religious turmoil in our world it sometimes seems difficult to be thankful. But we believe that no matter how stressful or problematic our lives may be there is always something for which we can give thanks. And the best way to express our gratitude is to support one another and reach out to others in need. This can be as simple as sharing a smile with a homeless person, volunteering at a food pantry, driving a senior to the grocery store or contributing to your favorite cause. 

Buying Fair Trade certified products is another way to embody gratitude by helping those who are in need. The money you spend on Fair Trade products supports growers and artisans in developing countries. This year as you contemplate what you’re thankful for think Fair Trade!

For ideas on how to Fair Trade your Thanksgiving, Green America has created a great "5 Ways to Go Fair Trade for Thanksgiving" list.
