Help Save “Fair Trade”

Written by Cafe Campesino on Jan 17, 2011 in BLOG |

“By trying to claim exclusive rights over the term Fair Trade USA, TransFair is making claim to a movement that, in large part, it is abandoning.” 

– Dale Wiehoff of the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy, the organization that started Transfair.  Read more from the institute in their article, “Who owns a movement?”

More than 8,000 people have signed the Organic Consumers Association’s petition asking Tranfair to keep from trademarking “Fair Trade USA” as an exclusive brand.  Do not let Transfair legally claim, as an exclusive brand, a term that encompasses the Fair Trade movement.   SIGN THE PETITION!
