FairTrade Caravans – Item Preview

November 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

FairTrade Caravans

Support local programs with global good. 

From November 1- November 18, the BFL is holding a fundraiser with Fair Trade Caravans. You can start your holiday shopping or buy everyday products and know that you are supporting not only the BFL, but also global farmers and artisans.
 
Come to this library event to see samples of products, listen to the stories behind the products, and ask questions of our representative.

We will discuss the deeper meaning of fair trade and how our purchases directly effect farmers, artisans, and producers world wide, along with the benefits of replacing certain commodities and products with fair trade certified options — especially in relation to school and non-profit fundraising.

FairTrade Caravans is a social enterprise connecting global and local communities through education and fundraising programs. We educate school and nonprofit groups about the benefits of fair trade and provide a program where they can sell fair trade products online and receive a share of the profits for their own fundraising goals.

Fair trade means that the conditions under which food is grown and products are made meet certain criteria such as fair pay, safe working conditions, no child labor, and sustainable practices. The fair trade industry is growing as commerce becomes more global and people are becoming more educated about, and therefore care more about, the sources of the food and products they buy and the conditions under which they are produced.
