In case you haven’t heard, October is Fair Trade! Every year the Fair Trade community raises awareness and celebrates all that is Fair Trade for the entire month of October. This year, Autonomie is excited about celebrating one of our key ethical missions: Fair Trade and we have some exciting promotions coming up!
This year, we wanted to bring Fair Trade back to its roots: the workers, the farmers, and the artisans. Who are they and how does your purchases really affect them? That’s why for the entire month of October we will be featuring stories on the producers for our products including the sneakers, flip flops, and Little Green Radical children’s wear. Each of the four weeks of October, we will feature a specific producer story for one of these products on our blog. We will also be posting pictures of the producers on our Facebook during the entire week.
But here is where you come in! When you see either the blog or album posted to our Facebook, share our post with your friends by choosing the “Share” option under our post! We will choose one lucky winner who shares the producer’s stories to win one of the featured products of that week. You read that right, free Fair Trade goodies for spreading the word.
We will also be holding a special sale for the entire week on the products the producer of the week created such as onesies, children’s dresses, flip flops, or sneakers! Not only will you have a chance to see how your AP purchases make an impact on Fair Trade, but also score some great discounted Fair Trade threads and possibly win a free AP Fair Trade item!
Also be on the lookout for exciting new Fair Trade and ethical products launching mid month. You will want to be the first to know about these.
Be sure to keep up to date on our blog and Facebook all month long to learn how Autonomie and your purchases affect the lives of the workers who produce them. After all, Fair Trade is all about giving them autonomy.
