Fair Trade at Claremont Friends Meeting
Claremont Friends Meeting has chosen to be a fair trade congregation. Through our purchases, we wish to support the fair treatment of workers and the responsible stewardship of the environment. We have already committed to buying only fairly traded coffee, tea, sugar, and hand soap. During the next few months, we plan to deepen our awareness about fair trade and expand our commitment to include additional products.

Commit to Purchase Fair Trade Products When They Are Available
Work with your congregation to offer Fair Trade products regularly at services, vending machines or offices.
Include Fair Trade in Events
Serve up Fair Trade coffee, tea, and other products when possible at meetings, in gathering places, and at events.
