Fact: There's more Fair Trade Certified produce on store shelves during the holidays than any other time of the year
If your holiday plans are anything like ours, let’s just say we’ll be going through our fair share of sugar, vanilla, spices, squash, and… oh, come to think of it, let's just make a grocery list. It’s the time of year for gathering around the table, and with more Fair Trade Certified produce on store shelves than any other time of the year (hint, hint!), it's the perfect time to extend our gratitude to farming families around the world.
Most of the people who make Athleta clothes are women. Which is kind of fitting (pardon the pun) when you think about it. It’s also what drove us, back in January, to partner with Fair Trade USA to create more than 40 Fair Trade Certified styles. Because our mission is to empower women and girls to achieve their limitless potential. All women and girls, including the women making our tanks, tights and tees.
Americans drink more than 400 million cups of coffee per day. If tomorrow each one of us woke up and made just one cup Fair Trade, we would drive at least an additional $2 million dollars back to coffee farmers to help them address some serious challenges. In just one day. Because of one little choice. That’s pretty amazing.

Though corporate giving is a small percentage of all philanthropic monies given to non-profits in the U.S., it has an outsized opportunity to drive societal improvement and influence the hearts and minds of their stakeholders and the nation. (The organization Giving USA reports that about 5 percent of all philanthropy comes from companies each year.)
Communication comes up again and again in analyses of key competencies for sustainability leadership. Being able to build bridges between science and business, between the finance department and the sales department, between NGO concerns and board-level strategy, and then, get everyone moving forward across the bridge in sync. These are the tasks of a Sustainability Influencer, and they don’t come easily!
