Berkeley, California

World Fair Trade Day was a blast in Berkeley! Thanks to Sonia, a visiting Fair Trade jeweler from Peru, we hosted three events that weekend: a series of Fair Trade talks with the kids at The Berkeley School, a Happy Hour event at the Berkley HUB, and Tour de FAIR, a bicycle tour of Berkeley’s fair trade shops and restaurants.
