Fairtrade International

Fair Trade has economic, environmental & social benefits, it's great! If more people would choose Fair Trade products, this would be even more impactful. In 2020, of all the Fair Trade COFFEE grown on Earth only 25% was sold on Fair Trade terms. For CHOCOLATE, of all the Fair Trade cocoa grown, less than 30% was sold on Fair Trade terms. Of all the Fair Trade Tea grown, ONLY 4% was sold on Fair Trade terms. Let's CHOOSE FAIR TRADE more often!

Fairtrade International has a "Top 7 Products" Dashboard for Fair Trade BANANAS, COCOA, COFFEE, COTTON, FLOWERS, SUGAR, & TEA. With this, you can see where in the world these Fair Trade products are grown, how much is produced, how many organizations produce, how much Fair Trade Premium has been received, how the Fair Trade Premium has been used, and of what is grown Fair Trade, how much is sold on Fair Trade terms. https://www.fairtrade.net/impact/top-7-products-dashboard

We met outside! Meet & Snack with Fair Trade Minneapolis at Boom Island Park on Monday, July 18, from 7:30 to 9 pm was a success! At Fair Trade Minneapolis, we encourage people to choose Fair Trade products so farmers & artisans earn a fair & sustainable living, the environment is protected by the Fair Trade standards, and products including chocolate are made slave free.

Lots of people in Minneapolis, especially people under age 40, tell us they've never heard of Fair Trade.

We've found that we best raise awareness of Fair Trade when we give away Fair Trade products: Tony's Chocolonely, ALDI Moser Roth Chocolate, Fair Trade tea (tea bags, in conversation), etc. To continue doing this, we need donations. We're a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit. To donate, please use this website https://givebutter.com/fairtrademinneapolis

Thank you for your consideration.

Deborah Osei-Mensah

Fairtrade America sat down with Deborah Osei-Mensah, a registered cocoa farmer, livelihood development officer of Ghana’s Asunafo North Farmers Union, and leader of the union’s Monitoring and Evaluation team. Deborah told about her experiences as a cocoa farmer, getting involved with Fairtrade, contemporary and future challenges in cocoa farming, and her personal transformation as a mentor to other women farmers in her community.

To us, she said: "There are three things that I always say. Be fair. Practice fair. Make the future fair. If you’re not buying Fairtrade products, start being conscious about what you are consuming. Because of the Standards, we produce very good products. So, buy Fairtrade if you haven’t yet. If you’re already buying fairtrade – buy more.

For companies in the US, we all know that CO2 emissions from industry are causing a lot of climate change. If you want to do anything, make sure you are committed to supporting farmers to mitigate climate change. I want to say thank you to organizations like that are already in Fairtrade – you are doing really well.

I always say: we are in it together. Because this world is just one. So, let’s all make sure that we contribute and make the future a very fair one."

World Day Against Child Labour 05/31/2022

World Day Against Child Labour

Ok, let's see if Facebook can help power some change...
working with Fairtrade Australia & New Zealand,

Parents, grandparents, guardians, aunties, uncles - can you help?

To put an end to child labour, we've launched a new campaign.

Oh, did we mention that when you help, you go in the running to win a year's supply of Tony's Chocolonely Chocolate?

Here's what you need to do:

1. Go to https://lnkd.in/dEH9DyNH
2. Print out the poster there which says "It's time to talk about chocolate and child labour".
3. Take a photo of your child holding the sign.
4. Upload it onto our website.

We want to collect 1000 photos before World Day Against Child Labour on 12 June so we obviously need all the help we can get.

If you could use your social media platforms to share, that would be fantastic.

Let's do this.https://fairtradeanz.org/world-day-against-child-labour

A Fairer Future for All Means Gender Equality Now 03/21/2022

A Fairer Future for All Means Gender Equality Now

It's still Women's History Month! Let's read: "Women have long been the backbone of our planet’s agricultural production. The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that women today make up 60 to 80 percent of the farmers present in non-industrialized countries and that up to 70 percent of agricultural labour in some countries comes from women alone. This is a staggering number. And it is also a clear indicator of the vital role women play in feeding the world. However, despite the important contributions made by women farmers, the unfortunate reality is that most of them work long hours that go unnoticed and, above all, unrewarded. Just because they are women. … " https://www.fairtrade.net/news/a-fairer-future-for-all-means-gender-equality-now

A Fairer Future for All Means Gender Equality Now Women farmers make up the backbone of global agriculture. Fairtrade is ensuring they have a path to empowerment.

Chicago Fair Trade is proud to be a local and national leader in raising awareness about and building support for fair trade and its principles of environmental sustainability, ethical production methods, fair wages, and safe working conditions.

What can a Fair Trade Town do? Katherine will speak about Chicago Fair Trade, to inspire Fair Trade Minneapolis. Then, we’ll seek to best apply her great ideas.
