31 Days and Quite a Few Fair Trade Ways

The theme of Fair Trade month this October is "31 days, 31 ways." While I have been prepping up for awhile now, the fact is I won't be able to celebrate each and every day.

But here are some things I have in store:

Fair Trade LA, St. Cross Episcopal, and South Coast Interfaith Council are co-hosting an event on "Starting a Fair Trade Business" to be held Thursday, October 1 at 7:00 p.m. at St. Cross Episcopal Church
1818 Monterey Blvd.,
Hermosa Beach, CA
I'll be joining David Funkhouser, TransFair USA, Strategic Relations Manager and Phil Fehrle, owner of Fair Trade Express to discuss how Fair Trade is related (or not) to Corporate Social Responsibility.

I'll also be joining the San Diego Friends of Fair Trade at a local October Fest event (the photo above shows the fun we had last time I was there), as well as being part of Catholic Relief Service efforts to build awareness of economic justice. More details on those events in LA can be found through CRS Fair Trade.

If you are in California, I hope you can join us!

  1. Isn't the 31 Ways to support Fair Trade great? There are so many things we can and should be doing to further fair trade in every city.
