This year more so than ever, mothers (and all parents) deserve to be recognized for how they’ve gone above and beyond, often becoming homeschool teachers, recreation leaders and schedule keepers, all while balancing working and trying to maintain their own health and wellness.

Mothers continue to act as unsung heroes as they continue to hold down the family, working harder to keep everyone sane and safe. We’re excited to announce we’ve partnered with six Fairtrade certified brands to make this Mother’s Day more meaningful.

We’ve teamed up with six sustainable brands, Lily’s Sweets, Organic India, Ethical Bean Coffee, Nielsen-Massey Vanillas, Love Crunch and Looma Home, all of whom are Fairtrade certified, in order to honor mothers with a Meaningful Mother’s Day giveaway.

Celebrate Mother's Day with an ethical gift that gives back to moms all over the world!

Simply visit our Instagram to enter between May 3 - May 10, and on Mother’s Day three lucky winners will be picked to receive a package of Fairtrade gifts. Here’s a look at the Fairtrade certified brands and their eco-friendly products that are part of this Meaningful Mother’s Day celebration:

  • Looma Home Signature Organic Sheet Set – Give mom the gift of a cozy and restful night’s sleep!  
  • Love Crunch Espresso Vanilla Cream - Perfect for a breakfast in bed that even the youngest in the family can make. Pour this delicious granola into a bowl or atop mom’s favorite yogurt and voila! 
  • Ethical Bean's Lush – Help mom wake up on the right side of the bed with this luscious dark roast coffee; using her favorite coffee mug is highly advised.  
  • Nielsen-Massey Organic Fairtrade Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract - Make mom’s creamer extra unique by adding a bit of delicious flavor. Or, if you decided to make pancakes with other pantry staples, simply mix in this delicious Vanilla Extract for a delicious flavor mom will love. 
  • Lily’s Sweets - Even in the most stressful times, chocolate provides a moment of relief. Lily’s has provided both their Hazelnut Milk Chocolate Style Bar, and a 2-Pack of Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, both of which can provide mom the perfect quarantine walk treat.  
  • Organic India - Wellness is more important than ever. Help keep mom feeling in tip-top shape with Organic India’s Tulsi Holy Basil Supplement, or find the perfect retreat with a midday cup of Tulsi Green Tea.

Our mission is to secure decent working conditions, fair prices, and better terms of trade to empower producers and ultimately improve their social, environmental and economic stability. We achieve this mission, in part, by encouraging shoppers interested in ethically and sustainably sourced products to vote with their dollars for Fairtrade certified products this Mother’s Day in purchasing sustainable gifts for mom.

We hope you’ll join and share in our mission to honor moms by showing your support for a more meaningful Mother’s Day. Make sure to follow us on Instagram @FairtradeMarkUS so you don’t miss our giveaway next month!
