It's Fair Trade Day, in the midst of Fair Trade Fortnight (and it makes me smile that America's English doesn't rule the world - we don't say "fortnight" much here. Do you know what it means? It's short for (because the Brits are the champions of having a short form for things) fourteen nights - hence, a fortnight is two weeks.)
Raise your cup today full of fair trade coffee. Don't have any? Go get some. And watch the clock if you want to Help Set a World Record today.
For WFTD 2008, we will set the world record for the World’s Largest Fair Trade Coffee Break. On May 10, 2008 at 3 pm Eastern/Noon Pacific. people across the country will take a break to enjoy a cup of Fair Trade coffee or other Fair Trade beverage. We will be setting a new record that will serve as a benchmark for future years’ challenges!
