UCC Norwell Fair Trade Initiative
We are a Christ-centered inclusive community called to ministry. We purchase Fair Trade coffees, teas , chocolates, etc from Equal Exchange, a local Fair Trade roaster, and serve it every Sunday at coffee hour. We also have Fair Trade sales on the second Sunday of every month where we sell a variety of Equal Exchange products. UCCN Fair Trade Initiative will host its second Fair Trade Alternative Market on November 3, 2018. This market brings together Fair Trade vendors and local small farmers and artisans to provide fair trade purchasing power to the South Shore area of Massachusetts. We are very excited to provide this opportunity of growth in the Fair Trade movement . We also work hand in hand to support our South Shore Interfaith Coalition Against Human Trafficking.
