Manitobans take the One-Month Challenge

Posted March 1st 2011

The Fair Trade Manitoba One-Month Challenge is fully underway! Manitobans throughout the province are consuming only Fair Trade coffee, tea and chocolate for thirty days.

Five of the people in our province who are taking the challenge are sharing their stories through personal blogs. They represent the wide range of Manitobans who are ensuring that they only consume products for which the producers receive a fair wage and safe working conditions. Find which participant matches your fair trade interests and follow them throughout the challenge. How easy is the Challenge proving to be for them? Are they encountering any difficulties in getting their hands on Fair Trade products?
