For four years, Global Exchange has organized its National Valentines Day of Action by encouraging educators nationwide to bring social justice into the classrooms through teaching a Fair Trade cocoa curriculum. This program is a sweet way to bring fair trade into classrooms and teaches youth to support small farmers across the world who are standing up against exploitation by transforming trade, one cocoa bean at a time. To participate in National Valentines Day of Action, you can download the fair trade curriculum for classrooms nationwide. You can also participate in "Raise the Bar Hershey" by sending valentines urging the company to adopt fair trade methods, as well as shop for fair trade goodies in the Global Exchange online store.
Green America is making green gift-giving easy and sweet with its online Valentines Day Green Gift Guide. The guide lists a variety of green gift businesses from their extensive member directory and even includes special Valentines Day promotional discounts! Choose from organic body products to fair trade chocolate and coffee, eco-friendly fashion, accessories and much more.
Have a wonderful Green Valentines Day with your loved ones! Stay tuned for exciting Green Festival announcements coming in the next week!
