Fair Trade Month is Here!

Fair Trade Month 2010 is officially here and this year’s theme is “Every Purchase Matters.” This is a great time for all of us to reflect on the things we buy and try to be more conscious consumers. Every time you purchase a Fair Trade product, you are voting with your dollars and telling the world that you care about who produced your product, where, and under what conditions. This month, make it a priority to engage your friends, family and colleagues in discussions about Fair Trade- your involvement and passion can and will inspire others!

In honor of Fair Trade Month, Marigold will:

  • Hold multiple contests on our blog, and Twitter and Facebook pages, where readers can win FREE products every week during the month of October.
  • Sponsor and adopt October 21 through our partner Transfair USA– make sure to follow them on Facebook and Twitter to get all the details!
  • Offer an exclusive coupon code to those people who find out about us and make an online purchase during Fair Trade Month
  • Host events in Olympia, WA and New York, NY, on Thursday October 21st, where we will debut our Fall 2010 collection and screen our documentary, while serving guests delicious fair trade wine and chocolates!
  • and more!

This is an exciting time for Marigold and for the Fair Trade movement in general.  And just as a heads up, stay tuned for BIG NEWS coming from us during the month of October….

Marigold has a new blog!

Hello Friends!

Welcome! As a pioneer in the organic and fair trade fashion world, Marigold is happy to share this brand new blog with you!  This will be a great way to keep our followers up to date with the great work we are doing with an association of 5000 organic cotton farmers, and with a co-op of over 300 women in the slums of Mumbai, India.

We are very excited and think that you will really enjoy the new features:

  • An RSS feed so you can automatically receive new posts to your feed reader (iGoogle, myYahoo! etc)
  • A category list and archive so you can easily find particular blog posts
  • A blogroll so you can see what organizations and blogs we follow
  • A search box so you can quickly find what you need using a keyword
  • Our twitter feed so you can see what we are up to each day
  • Author gravatars for each post so you can see the pictures of the people behind the scenes at Marigold
  • Our Flickr feed so you can see pictures of our products, the farmers and the women in the cooperative

And as always, we welcome all of your comments and feedback and want our blog to be interactive and as useful to our readers as possible.  If there is a particular subject you want us to cover, or a link you think we would be interested in, please let us know!  Thank you for visiting and we hope to see you back here very soon!
