I had the absolute pleasure of preparing a superfood breakfast with none other than the main Breakfast Criminal herself - Ksenia Avdulova. I met Ksenia a few years back and together, along with Jen Gootman of West Elm and Jonit Bookheim of Mata Traders, we founded the ethical shopping initial #FairTuesday.
We started #FairTuesday as a 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. The initiative quickly grew through social media channels and today we have 150 partners in 14 countries that are supporting our cause.
To celebrate #FairTuesday 2014, we prepared a delicious Fair Trade breakfast including a Cinnamon Spice Cookie Acai Bowl, and a Pomegranate & Pitaya Maple Cheer Smoothie. We were also outfitted by fair trade clothing company, Mata Traders and accessorized with jewelry from GGP! For all the recipes visit Breakfast Criminals and don't forget to shop on #FairTuesday, December 2nd!
