Fair Trade Trick or Treat

On Halloween, we hand out bundles of fairly traded chocolate to students. Fair trade is an organized social movement and market based approach to help small farmers and small producers. Buying fair trade makes a difference in the lives of real people... and it tastes great! We hope to spread the word about this sustainable movement to students and faculty.
