Sustainability Tip of the Week: Be Fair, Buy Fair

Event Type(s): Other

October is Fair Trade Month and a good time to think about the hard-working people who produce the foods we eat and the fabrics we wear. Fair Trade is trade in which producers are justly and fairly compensated for their products. It is a system that respects producers, communities and the environment. Common Fair Trade products found on campus are coffee, tea and chocolate. Look for Fair Trade certification on the products you buy or try a new-to-you Fair Trade product during October.
