A Fair Trade Easter

by Emily Betzler April 11, 2014

I can't believe that Easter is already next week!  This year our goal is to make sure that our Easter celebration and consumption better align with our beliefs.  After all, we are honoring the ultimate demonstration of love and sacrifice, so we don't want this fact to get lost in mix of eggs, candy, bunnies, and such. I am still researching the reasons and history behind some of our traditions (where on Earth did the Easter bunny come from anyway? What's with the eggs?), but a total revamp of our Easter celebration will have to wait until next year when I don't have an adorable infant wanting to play with me at every waking second. However, I know there are a few purchasing choices that I can easily make to better honor Jesus and his sacrifice. So this Easter we are striving for a "Fair Trade" Easter.  Choosing Fair Trade this Easter helps us share His love by ensuring that the people who made our products received fair compensation for their work. Check out the following companies and products to "Fair Trade your Easter"
