Fair Trade Week :: Box of Goodies Giveaway

The other day I regaled you with my Fair Trade Breakfast Bread. It was the start of “Fair Trade Week” here on Bluebonnets & Brownies.

Let’s talk more about Fair Trade Certified products, shall we? For a start, this is the logo you should look for:

Fair Trade Certified products, of course, guarantee the farmers and families that work to grow and harvest the crops we rely on a fair price for the work they do. But it’s not just about obtaining a fair price.

Buying Fair Trade Certified Products Guarantees:

  • Fair Prices
  • No GMOs
  • No Hazardous Chemicals
  • No Child Labor

Check out this video that can explain it better than I ever could:

Now that you know how awesome Fair Trade Certified products are for the organization behind them, how about we send you some?

Congratulations to Melissa @ Kids in the Sink! Enjoy your box of Fair Trade Goodies!

      I love the Pumpkin Spice Coffee. It is awesome this time of year… gets me in the holiday spirit! I also follow you on pinterest.

    2. Amy Dubik says

      I love the pumpkin spice coffee k-cups. I bought myself a box and my son decided that they were really good so now I have to buy more.

    3. MaryBeth says

      I buy fair trade produce at my local Sam’s Club and also buy Green Mountain Coffee – pumpkin spice is my current fave!

    4. Susan H. says

      I love Green Mountain coffee KCups. Would like to try other Fair Trade items…especially the honey.

    5. Robin O says

      The Green Mountain Coffee Fair Trade Pumpkin Spice Coffee is my favorite!
      I would love to try more Fair Trade products, though. Thank you for the giveaway and for supporting the movement…so important!

    6. anne says

      After hearing terrible stories of the coffee trade I make sure all my coffee is fair trade. If it’s organic too that’s a bonus. Green mountain is a great example.

    7. Bonnie K says

      I’ve bought mostly Green Mountain Coffee that is Fair Trade so I would have to say this is my favorite. I should have bought more of the Fair Trade Island Coconut. I’m all out! I’m now going to buy the Fair Trade bananas. I’ve been buying the conventional ones, but since watching the video and looking at the website, I’ll switch to Fair Trade.

    8. Megan Walker says

      Every single fair trade coffee I’ve tried- I love! I also tweeted from @onesky1destiny (: happy fair trade month

    9. Judith M. says

      Love dark chocolate and the best is fair trade “Green and Black”. I would like to try the honey.

    10. Jessica Moran says

      My favorite fair trade item is Equal Exchange chocolate. I already follow @FairTradeUSA on Twitter, I tweeted the message, and I just followed you on Pinterest. Thanks!

    11. Dawn DeVinney says

      I would most like to try the “Green Mountain Fair Trade Seasonal Pumpkin Spice Coffee”

    12. will says

      I love fair trade certified coffee and buy it whenever I can. That banana acai spread sounds AMAZING, though.

    13. says

      I’ve always love the Green Mountain coffee and would love to try the Fair Harvest Banana Acai Spread! Sounds delicious.

    14. Evelyn R says

      The Fair Harvest Banana Acai Spread sounds interesting….it was inspired by a smoothie. I’d love to try it!

    15. Sharon says

      My favorite Fair Trade product is the Green Mountain Pumpkin Spice Coffee–love that stuff! Thanks so much.

    16. says

      My favorite fair trade product is coco powder by any Fair Trade company — It is ALWAYS in my cupboard. I’d love to try the banana acai spread — that sounds delish!

    17. says

      My favorite fair trade certified product is Green and Black chocolate, mainly because I can always find it…I’d like to try more!

    18. Kristen M. says

      I would love to try the banana acai spread. I think it’s something my kids would love too.

    19. Holly says

      I buy fair trade certified organic Bolivian blend coffee from Trader Joe’s, but I would love to try the coffees in your giveaway. The pumpkin spice sounds really good.

    20. jessica says

      i do buy some fair trade coffee. i live in a small town and these types of items are hard to find!

    21. Wehaf says

      I’d love to try some fair trade teas. Among the products being given away, the honey sounds most tempting to me.

    22. says

      I love Fair Trade coffee, particularly anything from Green Mountain, but also becoming very interested in Fair Trade Chocolate now that I am learning how cocoa beans are harvested (child labor used :( ) I want to support a product that is ethically and fairly traded for.

    23. Elena V says

      The Pumpkin Spice coffee sounds delicious, I would love to try that. I’d have to pull out my big recipe book and make pumpkin cheesecake just for the occasion!

    24. Elena V says
