Fair Trade at BC and Beyond
  EMAIL TO FRIEND
 
Fair Trade at BC and Beyond      Do you know where your coffee comes from? Or who made the clothing on your back? What about the chocolate you’ll be buying for Valentine’s Day? Most products come at the cost of human suffering and injustices that can and should be prevented. Come join us at the kick-off event of BC’s very first Fair Trade Week as representatives from Equal Exchange and Ben & Jerry’s share how their companies have adopted fair trade business models and leaders from organizations like Student Farm Workers’ Alliance and Not for Sale speak about their own involvements. Student organizations—such as Real Food, R.E.A.C.T., UGBC, and EcoPledge—will also be present to describe ways in which you can get involved with fair trade on campus. There will be a fair trade sale and free fair trade chocolate (even a chocolate fountain!), coffee, free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, and a raffle for authentic fair trade items, so don’t miss out on this great opportunity to learn more about fair trade!
