October is Fair Trade Month! If you aren’t familiar with Fair Trade, watch this short video to learn more.

You can also watch this video for information on Fair Trade Month.

To help me spread the word about the importance of buying Fair Trade Certified products, Fair Trade USA, the leading third-party certifier of Fair Trade products in the United States, sent me a package of Fair Trade goodies to sample!

The package included treats from these brands:

  • Sweet Riot Chocolate Bar
  • Kopali Organics Chocolate Covered Bananas
  • Traditional Medicinals Tea & Mug
  • Near East Quinoa Blend
  • Honest Tea
  • Badger Lip Balm
  • Larabar
  • Cisse Trading Company Hot Cocoa
  • Coupon for Coconut Bliss products
  • Glory Bee Honey
  • Green Mountain Coffee

Everything is so great, and I have loved sampling each item. I love the Traditional Medicinals Mug. It even comes with a lid to better steep my tea! I normally awkwardly place a small plate over it, so I am excited to have the proper mug now.
