World Fair Trade Day

May 14

World Fair Trade Day is a worldwide celebration of Fair Trade’s contribution to the fight against poverty and exploitation. On this day, we'll be hosting an open house in our Fair Trade+ galleries to feature Fair Trade brands doing their part to make this world a better place. 

Meet Marla Showfer of The Winding Road and learn her inspiring story. At the age of 50, she made the decision to move on from her career in corporate marketing and apply her talents toward helping marginalized artisans from across the globe. By bringing their beautiful handmade products to robust markets in the USA and other countries, she gives at-risk workers the opportunity to earn a fair living. Hear Marla's story in this video at our Facebook page, and then come in to meet her on World Fair Trade Day.   

A Donation for Every Fair Trade Purchase

For every Fair trade purchase on May 14, The Little Traveler will donate to the Early Childhood Development Center & Butterfly House in Nepal, an organization that provides services and a homelike environment to children whose mothers are incarcerated. In Nepal, many of these children have nobody else to care for them, and so have no choice but to serve their mothers' sentences with them. 


On World Fair Trade Day, Receive a FREE Quilling Card ($11.99 value) with a $25 Fair Trade Purchase. 

Enter drawings all day long. Prizes will include Fair Trade products & Little Traveler gift cards.
