Fair Trade Certified (TM) enforces internationally-monitored environmental standards, helping farmers gain the resources and knowledge they need for sustainable growing, organic conversion, reforestation, and water conservation? It all starts with making a Fair Trade purchase.
In celebration of Fair Trade Month in October, Fair Trade USA is launching a new social media initiative. The new FREE Fair Trade Finder Facebook and mobile (iPhone and Android) application allows consumers to enter their location to find out where they can buy Fair Trade Certified products nearby as well as be among the first to populate the map with other Fair Trade product locations. It’s the next step to a greener lifestyle and socially conscious earth.
You can be a part of the next step in going green by checking out the Facebook application here: www.fairtradeapp.com. You can also download the FREE mobile app from the Android and iTunes app stores.
