The Campaign for Fair Trade at Denison University
Here at Denison we are working to commit to Fair Trade products throughout campus. Educating on Fair Trade while also using these products will allow us to create strong discerning moral agents out of our students. Additionally, it will ensure that Denison is at the forefront of consumer ethics. Our desire is that by pursuing Fair Trade products we will help and improve various communities around the world, including ours, for present and future generations.
