Fair Trade Manhattan

The New York Fair Trade Coalition is looking for partnerships to help make Manhattan a Fair Trade Town. We will be hosting events and gathering intel on businesses throughout the year to push forward the visibility of fair trade products and consumption. If you are a fair trade school or business in Manhattan who purchases fair trade products (corporate or retail), we want to hear from you.
