WORLD FAIR TRADE DAY AND TWO YEARS OF ONE FAIR DAY

1431031449163

This time two years ago, I sat down to publish my first post on One Fair Day. A lot has changed over the last two years – it’s certainly harder to blog now that I’m working full-time. My head is swimming with ideas for content I want to, but am yet to, share. But perhaps the most exciting change over the last two years has been seeing the change in the industry: a greater variety of ethical brands and online platforms and a sizeable movement of people who are starting to think about the impact of their purchases, as evidenced by Fashion Revolution Day.

The anniversary of this blog coincides with World Fair Trade Day. The theme of World Fair Trade Day for 2015 is ‘Be an Agent for Change’:

Fair Trade is an agent for change. It is a tangible solution to poverty eradication, a good tool for sustainable development, and most of all Fair Trade promotes social justice. 

In the two years since I started wiring One Fair Day, I’ve published 194 posts. Here were some of my favourite to research, write and create in the last year:

Most importantly of all, I have absolutely loved continuing to connect with likeminded brands, ethical pioneers (like Ren of MATTER, and recently, Jai of Thread Harvest), bloggers (like Hannah and the others in the Ethical Blogger Network) … and you, my One Fair Day readers.

So, dear readers, going into my third year of writing One Fair Day, I’m interested in hearing more about you and what your favourite types of posts are. What do you want to see more of?

Your Fairly,

Ashlee

P.S. My ethical favourite, People Tree, are offering 25% off purchases today :-)

    Congrats! My blog is just over two years old, if I’m remembering correctly.

    I’ve been following you for several months and I like your mix of posts. I’d love to learn a bit more about you through them.
