Looks like we are headed back down to New York this Saturday, May 9th, to celebrate World Fair Trade Day. We will celebrate this incredibly important holiday by participating in the Fair Trade Vendor Fair, which includes AP, of course, but also Global Good Partners, Sustainable Threads, Interrupcion*, and a whole host of others! Along with the vendor fair there will be FREE Fair Trade giveaways including coffee and chocolate. Fair Trade video games, and Fair Trade info booth. Throughout the day there will be film screenings including “Bean to Bar,” a film about Divine Chocolate and the Kuapa Kokoo cooperative and“Awaken Your Conscience,” a film about the Equal Exchange cooperative as well as Fair Trade speakers and presenters.
So if you are in the Big Apple this weekend, please take the time to come talk with fellow fair traders, learn about Fair Trade, eat some delicious chocolate and of course say hi to us! We hope to see you there celebrating and spreading awareness!
