World Fair Trade Day 2011

Indigenous Designs is a proud sponsor in World Fair Trade Day, an international celebration of Fair Trade. This year’s events will be taking place in over 80 countries worldwide. Help us invite friends, coworkers and neighbors to build awareness of Fair Trade and empower vulnerable producers! Fair Trade seeks dignity and hope for farmers and artisans who produce the items we consume and enjoy, a better future for our planet, and tastier, higher quality products for you. Across N. America, advocates are inspiring over 100,000 people to take Fair Trade Coffee Breaks from May 1-15. In 2009 over 65,000 people took such breaks. The more people participate in World Fair Trade Day, the more difference we can make. With over 1,000,000 producers around the world already benefiting from Fair Trade, it’s time to raise our voices and vote with our dollars until all trade is fair! This year, individuals as well as organizations will host hundreds of events to celebrate Fair Trade. Visit to learn more and get involved.
