Fair Trade the White House

We’re really pleased to lend our support to a new campaign aimed at bringing Fair Trade to the White House.

Here’s what it is all about:

“Fair Trade the White House,” a grass-roots, nonpartisan coalition of fair trade organizations, vendors, retailers, schools, and individuals, are cordially inviting the First Lady to join the fair trade movement and declare the White House a “Fair Trade Home.” By declaring the White House a “Fair Trade Home,” Mrs. Obama can encourage households throughout America to continue refining their buying habits toward ethical consumption so that poverty, both in America and around the world, is reduced.

Think it’s a good idea? (of course you do!) – then check it out, sign up and start making a difference!

As an added bonus, you will find offers from Global Fayre and other supporters of the campaign. How cool is that?!
