Fair Trade at UA
The main goal of this campaign is to get Fair Trade coffee on our campus. You might find yourself asking, What is Fair Trade coffee? For companies who produce Fair Trade coffee, they promise to provide their farmers with money to support themselves, with enough left over to improve their communities. By supporting Fair Trade coffee you are also supporting empowerment and self-sufficiency for small farmers, cultural heritage in communities, women’s participation, and environmental sustainability.
