There are so many special days dedicated to celebrations around the world. Some days are more personal, like Mother’s Day; while others are communal like New Year’s Eve. The celebration of World Fair Trade Day provides the extraordinary opportunity to blend personal, communal with global implications. . World Fair Trade Day marks a day for the global community to unite in the advancement of social and just trade. It is also a personal invitation to consider sustainable consumption as it relates to our own individual habits and its effect on the global economy and worker conditions.
