Behind The Butter/ Giveaways

Fair Trade Month Giveaway



I am so, so, so excited about this Monday morning giveaway! I seriously think it’s one of the best giveaways I’ve ever done. You definitely don’t want to miss out on this, friends.


I am partnering with my friends at Fair Trade to giveaway an AMAZING box of Fair Trade clothing to one lucky reader! Yes, you heard that right — today you win clothes! Super cute clothes, at that. When my friend Lauren contacted me about this, I had no idea that certain clothing brands had recently started carrying Fair Trade items. Like, awesome brands such as Prana and Patagonia. Brands that I already wear and adore. You guys know how passionate I am about ethical companies promoting job creation to help diminish poverty….and I was soooooo happy to see that these brands were partnering with such an amazing organization like Fair Trade USA to do so!


I got the honor of “getting to know” one of the factory workers in India and it’s my privilege to share a little bit of her story with y’all this morning:

Komil Baror, 24, from Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, works as a tailor in Pratibha Syntex, in Pithampur, Madhya Pradesh, India. A member of the factory’s Fair Trade Committee, she has worked at the factory for 5 years. “I’m very happy to work here because there is no inequality amongst workers – the work atmosphere is very positive. I want to thank Fair Trade consumers for supporting us. Over a period of time, our involvement with fair trade will only improve the quality of our product because workers will be more invested in their work. Pratibha’s product is already considered the best in the region – we want to be ‘double best.'” Komil is very active in the Fair Trade committee and proposed improvements for migrant workers like herself, including establishing a community kitchen space, repairs for personal storage lockers, and establishing a designated room for visiting parents of workers, some of whom have traveled from thousands of kilometers away.


So, one lucky winner will win a whole BOX of super awesome Fair Trade clothes. Here’s a photo of what’s in the box:


You’ll win one sweater from Prana, three items from Pact, one item from Patagonia, one pair of shoes from Oliberte, one Boll & Branch organic cotton cable knit throw and one organic cotton robe from Under the Canopy.

Oh! And a bag of delicious Equator coffee, an organic chocolate bar and chocolate covered coconut flakes. YUM.

As you can see, this is like the ultimate prize package! The winner has some serious shopping decisions to make! All of the products are amazing and very well made. I hope this goes to a wonderful home. US applicants only, please.
