Fair Trade Alexandria aims to harness the spirit of one of the nation’s first historic trade towns and transform it into a Fair Trade Town by fostering ethical and fair commercial partnerships, environmentally sustainable trade practices, and educational opportunities for all participants.
Fair Trade Alexandria was launched in May 2012 in connection with World Fair Trade Day. We are gaining community support throughout Alexandria and hope share the value of fair trade throughout the community.
