Rollins Sustainability Program

Ann Francis June 21, 2017

Rollins College became a fair trade-designated college in spring 2013 and the announcement was made during the Earth Day celebration, April 2013. With the City of Winter Park as a designated fair trade town, this community is becoming greener and, as stated in the college’s mission statement, committed to social responsibility and environmental stewardship.

Student Sustainability Program Coordinators work closely with departments and outlets to ensure fair trade items are available and promote fair trade on the campus during many events. Events in the past have included during Earth Day celebrations, Wellness Fairs, Valentine’s Day, Halloween and Fair Trade Your Finals at the end of each semester.
