Valentine’s Day evokes a variety of responses – the cynics among us may see it as a consumeristic ploy and the romantics among us see it as an opportunity to express love (or at least give/get a good gift). Regardless of where you land on the continuum between cynicism and a romanticism, I am sure we would all agree that a couple words come to mind when thinking about Valentine’s day – LOVE and CHOCOLATE.
Our Fair Traders are using Valentine’s Day to educate their friends about the realities of slavery in the cocoa industry and the power we all have to make simple choices that impact others lives simply by changing their spending habits. This is easy to do by hosting a film screening/discussion or by sharing resources on Facebook.
Put YOUR love in action by joining Fair Traders and helping to spread the word about Fair Trade. It is the best next step for any individual who wants to partner with Trade as One and be an ambassador for Fair Trade. The fun part is that you will get ideas for how to educate your friends, special discounting for Fair Traders and special perks for the friends you invite to your events.
