Laurel School

Laurel Fair Trade hopes to educate the Laurel Community about the various social injustices many under-developed countries face on a daily basis. Helping to learn and support Fair Trade will shine a light on the need for a safer, more just work environment leading to a more sustainable way of life. We hope to use funds that we earn towards investing in organizations and or individuals who aspire to better themselves and the world.
As we start our first year, we might be exploring many avenues to pursue, but we are excited about the endless learning opportunities the Fair Trade Club can provide our school.
Laurel School was designated as a Fair Trade School in January 2018.
