The Power of You. Fairtrade Fortnight is Here.

Vote Best Fairtrade Product in Canada

For 2014’s Fairtrade Fortnight, and for the next couple of years, Fairtrade Canada has joined forces with its international partners to join a campaign that focuses on the power of you.

Since 1998, people just like you around the world have been using their purchasing power to bring out positive change in the world. That collective power has resulted in over $148 million paid in premiums to producers, over 3,000 companies now distributing products sold on Fairtrade terms in over 125 countries (we’re one ‘em!), and thousands of certified Fairtrade products now available. With every purchase made, the idea that people and planet matter in addition to profits gets a little bit stronger.

This year, there are lots of ways to get involved near Vancouver and across the country!
