Fair Trade Towns!

It was only 13 years ago that the first Fair Trade Town came into existence. Since 2000 it’s amazing to learn that there are now nearly 1,000 Fair Trade Towns across the world! For the past couple of years I had the chance to help out with the La Mesa, CA Fair Trade Towns Campaign. A campaign has to achieve five badges to become a Fair Trade Town and while it’s a lot of work it is also a ton of fun! Not to mention terribly rewarding, to reach out to the community and educate them on the importance and value of fair trade.
