Fair Trade Month Twitter Party on October 13
Join the conversation and Tweet for Fair Trade!
Every October, Fair Trade brands and supporters come together to raise awareness about the importance of supporting products that are produced by workers earning fair wages in safe conditions. By purchasing Fair Trade products, lives are improved and the environment is protected. Unsure of how to even find Fair Trade products? Join GoodGuide and Fair Trade USA on October 13th at 1pm PT/ 4pm ET for a Twitter party about how to shop sustainably. Just follow @GoodGuide and@FairTradeUSA and the hashtag #FairTradeMonth to attend. To keep up with the conversation, we recommend that you use TweetChat during the party (it automatically adds the #FairTradeMonth hashtag to every tweet you send). Doesn't get much easier!
There are plenty of new tools to help get you started before the party even starts. The new Fair Trade Finder app locates Fair Trade products in your area, and includes user submitted reviews and photos. Additionally, the GoodGuide Transparency Toolbar can reveal Fair Trade products when shopping online at retailers such as Amazon.
And what would a party be without prizes? Five lucky attendees will win Fair Trade USA Gift Bags to get them started on their sustainable shopping endeavors. Each bag is chocked-full of Fair Trade products including: sweetriot chocolate, Simply Organic Devil’s Food Cake Mix, La Yapa Golden Royal Quinoa, Wholesome Sweeteners Raw Cane Sugar, Fair Harvest Pineapple Papaya Topping and Traditional Medicinals Chamomile Tea. Just comment on this blog and use the hashtag #FairTradeMonth to be eligible to win!
