Fair Trade Siena College

November of 2010 Siena College became the third college/university in the United States and first Catholic college/university to be awarded Fair Trade status.

Fair Trade Certification means Siena College:

Supports fair pay and working conditions for marginalized farmers and producers.
Encourages environmental sustainability.
Upholds children’s rights to security, education and play.
Believes what you buy matters.
Thinks Fair Trade earnings can be reinvested into communities to improve housing, healthcare and schools.
Siena College serves Fair Trade products like coffees, teas, sugar and chocolates in our dining establishments, at our catered functions and in department offices whenever feasible and within the confines of food service contracts. We also offer Fair Trade certified food products and handicrafts at college stores and identify and acknowledge Fair Trade certified products across our campus.
