All in all we have to say that 2015 has already been a great year at Fair Trade Vancouver, and it’s only mid April!
Thanks to everyone who’s come out to our monthly planning meetings and attending our MeetUps. We are excited and driven to host more events and engage in compelling conversations about what ethical sourcing and fair trade really means in Vancouver and around the world. The next month and a half are shaping up to raise that bar.
April’s MeetUp features businesses and researchers who have explored what it means to certify gold as fair trade. We are so excited to learn more about the challenges and opportunities for those involved in the gold industry throughout the supply chain, and learn about how to make a difference from here in Vancouver. See our MeetUp page for more information.
Fair Trade Month in May will present a number of ways to get involved and show your support for fair and better trade around the world from right here in Metro Van. Come join us for our last planning meeting before kickoff on Tuesday, April 28th, and then stay tuned for opportunities to join the movement. The month’s first event will provide you the chance to shop Fair Trade from some fantastic local companies at their Mother’s Day Pop-Up, and we are excited to announce more campaigns throughout the month. If YOU have an idea please let us know! Come out to a MeetUp and let someone know, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your thoughts.
Thanks for your interest in Fair Trade!
