Bambootique is thrilled to join forces with our friends at Anti-Body, as well as other fair trade companies and organizations, to ask Michelle Obama to make the White House fair trade! The coalition is a grass-roots, non-partisan group of vendors, consumers and fair trade organizations inviting our first lady to make the White House a fair trade home.
You can easily join the campaign by signing the invitation to Michelle Obama. The suggestion to Michelle is to increase the number of items purchased by the White House that are fairly sourced. Think how much coffee it takes to run the country? Or how much chocolate is used in those delicious White House pastries I’m always reading about? Our President and his wife have shown their committment to sustainability in so many ways, most recently in breaking ground on the White House’s own kitchen garden. This request asks them to take that personal commitment one step further by prioritizing fair trade food, body-care and clothing within their family and staff.
Join Bambootique in asking our First Lady to make fair trade an everyday part of White House life! (And while you’re at it, check out these great savings from Fair Trade The White House sponsors including Bambootique)!
