World Fair Trade Day–Giant Fair Trade Bananas!

it’s World Fair Trade Day and to help celebrate the FTH team will be asking members of the public to ‘Chalk Their Step’ for Fair Trade.  This entails tracing their foot in chalk and writing a message stating how they choose to support Fair Trade.  This can be as simple as talking to a friend about Fair Trade or as ambitious as getting their workplace to switch to Fair Trade coffee.  Each ‘Step’ will count towards raising awareness of Fair Trade standards therefore inching us closer towards our goal.

Don’t worry!  You can’t miss us!  Because we will be dressed as Giant Fair Trade Bananas!

Here are the details:

Where and When?
Main Street, Penetanguishene – 11:00am to 1:00pm
King Street, Midland – 1:00pm to 3:00pm
