Fair Trade West Chester University

The Sustainability Council at WCU is dedicated to a holistic view of sustainability, focusing on three pillars: social, economic, and environmental. We have a community of passionate and driven students through the student branch of the committee (known as Students for Sustainable Action) who are striving to evoke more student awareness through events such as the Student Brandywine Project, our Say No to Styro(foam) campaign, and now the Fair Trade university Initiative.
