A Farmer, a Brand and a Shopper Tell Their Stories

Elvia Almachi is 32 years old, has two daughters, and works on a rose farm near one of the world’s tallest volcanos in Ecuador. She has never met Deborah Holt, Chief Marketing Officer of Marich Confectionery in Hollister, California, or Kylie Nealis, a grassroots organizer with Fair Trade Campaigns in Oakland, California.  Elvia, Deborah and Kylie may be strangers, but they all have at least one thing in common: they each play an integral role in bringing Fair Trade to life.

The New Year is all about positive changes.  We aspire to do better, to be better – both to ourselves and those around us.  And while last year’s resolution to hit the gym every day certainly met one of those criteria (for a few days, anyway), what if this year you could make an even bigger change, one whose benefits reach all the way around the globe, just by getting a good night’s sleep?

We love November for many reasons. It’s fall, it’s Thanksgiving, and of course, it’s the time of year when we can find the most Fair Trade Certified™ veggies on store shelves. Basically everything good.      This year you can extend the holiday spirit from your harvest table to farming families around the world with Fair Trade. By choosing produce with the Fair Trade Certified seal, you can turn grandma’s green bean casserole or Aunt Judy’s butternut squash soup into a global force for good.
