**This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to everyone who entered. Sure wish I could send each one of you a bag!

Congratulations to Sarah (armywife…), enjoy your gifts!!

Have you ever seen this symbol on something that you purchased, but didn’t know exactly what it meant?

Well, when you buy products which have been Fair Trade Certified, you can rest assured that the workers who grew and harvested that food were given a fair wage and proper treatment.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m all about buying local as much as possible. But some things, such as coffee and cocoa, just aren’t grown by US farmers.

What I really love about Fair Trade USA is that this organization is working with farmers around the world, not only to ensure safe working conditions and fair pay, but also in strengthening organic and sustainable farming practices.

In order that we might be more conscientious with our purchases, Fair Trade USA has developed a Facebook  App,  a mobile app from the Android store, and an app from the iTunes store, which you can use to plug in your location and find Fair Trade products nearby.

There are so many wonderful products which have begun to carry the Fair Trade Certified label. And the people of Fair Trade USA have generously offered one of my lucky readers the chance to win a bag stuffed full of organic, fair trade products!

The bag they sent to me was jam packed with goodies! I’m talking about coffee, chocolate, raw cane sugar, tea… you guys definitely wanna get in on this one!
