Fair Trade Haiku Contest

Happy Fair Trade Friday, everyone! We are very excited to announce that today we are holding our first ever BLOG CONTEST!

For a chance to win a truly excellent prize (“Fall in Love with Fair Trade Certified” T-shirt, pictured above), all you have to do is submit a haiku telling us why you love Fair Trade, or what Fair Trade means to you. Please submit your haikus as Comments to this post.

In case you didn’t know, a haiku is a 3-line poem with a 5-7-5 pattern: the first line has 5 syllables, the second line has 7 syllables, and the third line has 5 syllables

Here are a few examples to get your creative juices flowing:

Fair wages are good

So is saving the planet

Way to go, Fair Trade!


Eating chocolate

Is not a bad thing if it’s

Fair Trade Certified!

The contest ends on Sunday July 12 at midnight PST. The 5 best entries (as judged by our panel of haiku experts) will receive a free T-shirt so they can advertise their love of Fair Trade to the world!

Thanks for participating!
