Can anyone tell me what happened to September? It seems like it just got here and now here we are in October...anyway...
October is Fair Trade Month! Fair Trade Certification empowers farmers and farm workers to lift themselves out of poverty by investing in their farms and communities, protecting the environment, and developing the business skills necessary to compete in the global marketplace.
We are also proud that our great city of Milwaukee is America's first Fair Trade City. There are a lot of great things happening in Milwaukee to promote Fair Trade Certified products and fair trade practices. You can learn more at the Milwaukee Fair Trade Coalition website
. You can also help to support Fair Trade by purchasing Fair Trade Certified products. Check out our line of Fair Trade Coffees
Drink Fair Trade...and of course, Sip Slowly.
