Fair Trade Month


Fair Trade Resource Network closed down in May 2014. The website at FTRN.org, and its contents, were left available to the public through Fall 2014. At that time, Fair Trade Federation takes ownership and control of the website and its contents.

Every October in the U.S. is Fair Trade Month!

In 2013, scores of events around the U.S. reached thousands of people in October to raise awareness about Fair Trade. Plus, lots of social media outreach spread the word even further. Fair Trade Resource Network partnered with Fairtrade America to host events at supermarkets, colleges and community gatherings.
