Back to School With Fair Trade: Your Ethical Shopping Guide

For your family, for their families. Send them to school with Fair Trade.

The average American household spent $688 on back to school supplies last year, for a total of $29.5 billion nationwide. This year, let's put those dollars to work. Your lunch, outfit, and after-school snack can help fund initiatives like installing air conditioning in an elementary school in Mexico and offering computer classes at a community center in Costa Rica. The power of your purchase makes Fair Trade a key ingredient in the ultimate back to school send-off. The little things, like Fair Trade Certified™ berries in your lunchbox or Fair Trade clothes in your closet, create learning opportunities for the whole world.
