#FairTuesday is an ethical shopping initiative created in response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The goal of #FairTuesday is to inspire conscious consumerism and show how an everyday purchase can change lives in a whole community. #FairTuesday features fair trade, ethical, and eco-friendly brands and invites other businesses to take a step towards sustainability.
The movement was launched in 2012 by Global Goods Partners, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering women around the globe through fair trade when Jennifer Gootman, then-executive director of Global Goods Partners, and social media expert Ksenia Avdulova met at an ethical fashion event in Brooklyn.
Over the course of five short weeks in 2012, #FairTuesday reached over 3 million people and brought together 135 partners in 13 countries.
