Record set for World's Largest Fair Trade Coffee Break!
On May 10 2008, a grand total of 12,128 people in more than 150 locations from coast to coast convened to set the record for the World's Largest Fair Trade Coffee Break. An estimated 50,000 people participated in more than 200 events taking place throughout North America during Fair Trade Fortnight (May 3-18).
These World Fair Trade Day celebrations contributed to efforts in 70 countries worldwide marking the importance and benefits of Fair Trade.
