St. Patrick’s Day – The Fair Trade Way

St. Patrick’s Day is a major holiday in Cleveland, Ohio where I grew up. When the Irish were immigrating to America around 100 years ago or so many of them settled in Northeast Ohio.  And even today there is a lot of Irish heritage pride in the city. So to celebrate this fun day there’s a big parade filled with Irish dancers, local politicians and high school marching bands (a little nerd disclosure here, I was in marching band for one year in high school and marched, quite proudly, in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade). Aside from parades, corned beef and Guinness, for those of age, celebrating St, Patrick’s Day is all about the color green!

Seven Hopes United carries several wonderful green products for you to choose from for this upcoming St. Patrick’s Day.  I have chosen a few of my favorites from the website for you to check out. And here is an Irish blessing for you and yours on this St. Patrick’s Day.

May you always have…
Walls for the winds 
A roof for the rain 
Tea beside the fire 
Laughter to cheer you 
Those you love near you 
And all your heart might desire.
