Fair Trade Month

Every October we celebrate Fair Trade month along with all the other manufacturers and retailers who offer Fair Trade products. When we exhibited at Expo East in Baltimore last month, unbeknownst to us, two of our booth neighbors were also displaying Fair Trade certified products. It was a little corner of Fair Trade products, with Theo Chocolate, Runa Tea, and Kelapo Coconut Oil!

Take time today to look through pictures of our actual farmers that are part of the Fair Trade project in Sri Lanka. And remember, when you use coconut oil, where is the oil being sourced from? Kelapo coconut oil was the first to bring Fair Trade certified coconut oil for cooking and baking to the US.
