Together, we are building an economy that allows workers, farmers, communities, and our planet to thrive.

Green America’s goal is nothing less than redefining the global economy — to shut down the world’s sweatshops and promote fair trading solutions that help millions of families lift themselves out of poverty.

In 2010 …

  • We exposed Hershey for their failure to address child labor and slavery practices in the cocoa industry, “Time to Raise the Bar: The Real Corporate Social Responsibility Report for the Hershey Company.” Our report garnered national and international media — and turned up the pressure on Hershey.

  • Our 300,000 strong Fair Trade Alliance supported Fair Trade nationwide. For our ‘Fair Trade your Supermarket’ campaign, members took to their grocers to grow demand one store at a time.

  • Families in cities across America joined us, and our allies at Global Exchange, this Halloween for the ‘Reverse Trick-or-Treat’ campaign, to hand out Fair Trade information to over 250,000 families.

Next year, with your support, we’ll double the number of people and communities using our guides to advance Fair Trade and involve over a million families in ‘Reverse-Trick-or-Treat.’ The more people involved in Fair Trade means more families worldwide stepping out of poverty.
