MAY GREEN STEPS
Celebrate World Fair Trade Day – in May and Everyday
"Green Steps" are simple steps you can take today to green your clothing, your home, your transportation and more! We encourage you to choose one step to get started and return for additional steps over time. If you're up for a green makeover choose a specific category from the list of Monthly Green Steps and get started!
Switch one product you buy frequently to Fair Trade. Fair trade companies guarantee workers a living wage and healthy working conditions.
Ask your local coffee retailers and supermarkets to carry Fair Trade Certified™ products such as coffee, tea, or chocolate.
Host a Fair Trade house party. Organized like a Tupperware® party, a Fair Trade house party is a great way to introduce friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers to fair trade products.
Look for the RUGMARK label when you buy rugs. Many of the handmade rugs in stores are woven or knotted by children. Carpets carrying the RUGMARK carry certification that no child labor was used.
