Fair Trade Burlington’s campaign broke the ice during winter of 2009 and has been submerged in excitement ever since! After earning its designation of 12th Fair Trade Town in August 2009, the committee put an emphasis on organizing events and planning for the future. The committee is comprised of volunteers from the University of Vermont, including students and faculty, local retailers, health food store employees, Vermont Fair Trade wholesalers and local advocates.
