Here are Be Sweet, we are proud to be a Fair Trade organization. Have you heard about Fair Tuesday? We’re pretty excited about it and wanted to share it with you so you can get involved.

FAIR TUESDAY

 

#FairTuesday
WHAT?
Fair Tuesday (hashtag #FairTuesday) is a fair trade initiative created in response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The goal of #FairTuesday is to inspire conscious consumerism and show how an everyday purchase can change lives in a whole community. We are featuring fair trade and eco-friendly brands and inviting other businesses to take a step towards sustainability.
WHEN?
Tuesday, November 27th, 2012
WHY?
Launched by @GlobalGoods, a New York-based nonprofit, fair trade organization that supports over 40 women-led artisan groups in Asia, Africa and the Americas. Global Goods Partners’ goal is to galvanize the fair trade community around #FairTuesday and make this movement global.
JOIN THE MOVEMENT
Whether you are an individual, organization, or a member of the press, you can join the #FairTuesday movement in two simple ways: by buying one fair trade item on Tuesday, November 27th, and by helping us spread the word about the movement on social media using hashtag #FairTuesday. If you represent a non-fair-trade business, tell us what you are doing to make your practices more green and fair.
BECOME A PARTNER
To become a partner, send an email to FairTuesday@globalgoodspartners.org telling us why you want to join the movement.
