“Go Bananas for Fair Trade” Campaign Launched

By Fair Trade Towns USA:

Presented by Fair Trade Towns USA, the Go Bananas for Fair Trade web page and toolkit will help you identify where Fair Trade bananas are available in your community and, if not, how to build the strategic relationships and consumer demand needed for local supermarkets to commit to Fair Trade bananas.  Join the Go Bananas for Fair Trade initiative this October as the national celebration for Fair Trade bananas begins!

Take the Go Bananas Challenge!

We need you to build consumer demand for Fair Trade bananas in your community! Take the Go Bananas Challenge from October 1 to October 14 by hosting Fair Trade banana themed events, and enter to win a trip to the Fair Trade Campaigns Conference in Chicago or a free year’s supply of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream.  All across the country, producers and Fair Trade supporters will be taking part! Here’s how you can participate!

Go Bananas Toolkit & Resources

The Go Bananas for Fair Trade Toolkit has everything you need to know about organizing successful banana themed events and effectively inspiring your community about Fair Trade bananas!  Please check out the “Resources” section on our Go Bananas for Fair Trade web page for more educational materials & links. Resources include PowerPoint presentations, template posters, event guides, talking to your produce buyer guides, social media guides, producer stories and more!

Where are Fair Trade Bananas Available?

Use our “Where to Buy” page to find out if Fair Trade bananas are available in your community and, if not, how you can successfully bring Fair Trade bananas to your supermarket, school, or workplace.

Banana knowledge is power and we hope that you’ll join our celebration to make Fair Trade banana availability widespread.  Please email gobananas@fairtradetownsusa.org for any questions!
