Now, After CyberMonday comes … #FairTuesday!
Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, then Cyber Monday…. it seems like soon we’ll have every day of the week dedicated to its own shopping cause! Ethix strives to support local, American-Made products that support fair labor practices every day. So we think it’s pretty cool that some of the great causes we’re behind every day are now getting more attention from the shopping public.
On the heels of Fair Trade Month (every October), the movement has now launched the premier of Fair Tuesday (November 27th, 2012) to inspire conscious consumerism and show how an everyday purchase can change lives in a whole community.
Sponsored by Global Goods Partners, #FairTuesday is featuring fair trade, ethical, and eco-friendly brands and inviting other businesses to take a step towards sustainability.

Definitely support fairly traded goods in support of #FairTuesday- but also remember to support American and unionized workers that make the products you use every day (mugs, tshirts, pens, totes and the like). Here are some of our fairly traded options for you:
