Mother's Day 2015

In honor of Mother’s Day, which falls on the same weekend as World Fair Trade Day (May 9-10), Fair Trade USA encourages families to share the love by giving Fair Trade gifts like roses or clothing, and cooking or baking with ingredients that feature the Fair Trade Certified label. This label helps ensure that the farmers and workers who made the products worked in safe conditions, protected the environment, and earn Community Development Premiums to reinvest back into their communities.
