What is World Fairtrade Day?
World Fairtrade Day is an initiative of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) that takes place on 11 May 2013. Recognized globally, events take place around the world celebrating Fair Trade’s contribution to the fight against poverty, climate change and the economic crisis that has the greatest impact on the world’s most vulnerable populations. It is a worldwide appeal to consumers to include Fair Trade in their shopping bags, to businesses to incorporate Fair Trade in their supply and to offices, and local authorities and national governments to include Fair Trade in public procurement.
