Los Angeles, California
The Los Angeles campaign was launched July 1, 2014 by Fair Trade LA.
What is Fair Trade LA?
Fair Trade LA is a 501(c)(3) community based organization that exists to “create and empower socially conscious consumers through education and outreach to increase the demand and availability of fair trade products in the communities of Los Angeles and surrounding areas. Fair Trade seeks to build an equitable and sustainable relationship between farmers, artisans, consumers and the planet.”
FTLA has helped to establish a number of Fair Trade towns in the LA area including Fair Trade Claremont and Fair Trade Pasadena. Now it’s time to make Los Angeles a Fair Trade Town!
