Fair Trade at Indiana University
Fair Trade at Indiana University is a team of business-minded and creative individuals who want Indiana University to qualify as a Fair Trade University. Bloomington, IN was the first Fair Trade town in Indiana, so we hope to continue on with the fair trade mission. We also encourage other ethical purchasing habits on campus such as buying local and buying items that have low environmental impact.
