Live Life Fair: The Impact of Shopping Fair Trade
We are a consumer society and our choices are driven by price and brand. Some consumers are paying attention to the impact of our choices both on the people who make our goods and on our environment. In this class, participants will learn about the alternative trade system known as fair trade, its standards and the positive effects of becoming an ethical shopper. In addition, we will discuss Ten Thousand Villages, the oldest fair trade retailer in North America and the products sold at this fully committed fair trade store.
