Media-Providence Friends School – Friends for Fair Trade

Friends (aka Quakers) are perhaps the original “Fair Traders”: in the 17th century, Quaker business owners were unique in setting fair fixed price for their wares rather than setting a high price and haggling with buyers. MPFS was an “early adopter” of the Fair Trade movement, teaching about and advocating for Fair Trade decades prior to the town of Media becoming America’s First Fair Trade Town. We’re excited about our certification as a Fair Trade School because equality and social justice are central to our beliefs. We hope our efforts encourage others to stand for Fair Trade.
