Take the 5% Fair Trade Challenge
One Easy Step Toward Living a Fair Trade Life!
By shopping more mindfully, it's easy to become part of the global Fair Trade network that's enhancing the lives of small-scale producers.
The average U.S household spends nearly $8,500* each year on food, clothing and home furnishings. This year, challenge yourself to shift 5% of that budget (just $425!) to products from Fair Trade businesses. Even a few careful shopping choices will make a big difference! (For a list of places to buy Fair Trade merchandise, see page 35.)
