This holiday season, Fair Trade Vancouver wants shoppers to make Fair Trade a part of their festivities. To learn more about what this city has to offer, we visited Choices Market as part of our Fair Trade Holiday Shop Event.
Food is such a big part of the holidays, we thought that it would be important to give Vancouverites some ideas on how to bring Fair Trade into their holiday meals.
Giving food as gifts offers a way for gift receivers to manage their holiday clutter. With minimal packaging and storage needs (most food gifts are best stored in our stomachs!), food gifts offer a means for bringing friends and family together for shared culinary experiences. Consider giving gifts of Fair Trade wine, olive oil, or put together a gift basket of baked goods.
Of course, our holiday meals wouldn’t be complete without holiday treats. Lorna Young of Fair Trade Vancouver has put together some special holiday recipes that will make the most of Fair Trade and other sustainable products available at your local grocery store.
