Hi Guys! I’m Hyunmin, a Mata Traders intern from Korea, and I’m back on the blog to celebrate World Fair Trade Day. Yay!

May 9th is World Fair Trade Day, a global fair trade celebration that brings together thousands of people committed to building healthy and sustainable communities world-wide.

Last October, we asked Mata fans one question each week about fair trade to celebrate Fair Trade Month. We asked people to tell us their favorite fair trade companies and products, why they support fair trade, what fair trade products they’d like to see more of. We got lots of awesome comments, and I’m excited to share them with you today!

I created word clouds to better show all of the replies we received. Put together, the responses paint quite a picture. It’s great to see how all of your individual relationships to fair trade, combined, can create truly meaningful change around the world.

Let’s take a look at your replies (click images to see larger versions)!
