University of Colorado at Boulder
We are two CU Boulder students trying to make a positive impact on our campus! Our goal is to start a Fair Trade Campaign here at CU and not only make Fair Trade products available on campus but, more importantly, spread awareness on the importance of Fair Trade over common industry. Please contact and follow our campaign to get involved and stay up to date on future events and news regarding all things Fair Trade. Go Buffs!
