“Go Bananas for Fair Trade” Initiative Welcomes Participants for October

This October, Fair Trade Campaigns is planning the Go Bananas for Fair Trade Initiative where Town, College, and University Campaigns all over the country will be hosting banana themed events. At these events, campaign organizers and Fair Trade supporters will take photos with a Fair Trade Banana photo prop and upload them to social media using the hashtag #FairBananas.   The 10 most creative photos will win Fair Trade gift baskets full of products like LARABAR, Numi Tea and Mayan Hand Fair Trade baskets.

Any Fair Trade supporters can participate.  Here’s how:

  1. Take a photo with the Go Bananas Prop (EX: with your staff or at an event you’re attending in October)
  2. Upload photos on Facebook, Twitter, Pintrest or Instagram using the #FairBananas hashtag
