HOT OFF THE PRESSES! A FAIR TRADE GUIDE TO BOSTON!
Boston Faith and Justice Network has put together a Fair Trade Guide to Boston! It not only details cafes, grocers and other venues that offer Fair Trade products, but also includes which items you can expect to find where! As Fair Trade product availability continues to expand in Boston, this resource will no doubt need more (exciting) updates. Either way, it’s an excellent starting tool for encouraging more conscientious “money voting.” The Guide also includes information about Fair Trade and the backgrounds of various famous Fair Trade products, as well as an entertaining essay on a quest to find said products in Boston by the writer Bryan Parys. You can download the Guide in PDF form for free by clicking here or on the picture to the left. They are also available in physical bound form for $4.
Boston as a city is a rich resource of Fair Trade organizations, advocacy, information, and opportunities. Below are just a few websites of organizations based here that are (inter)national leaders in the Fair Trade movement. Visit their sites for more education, answers and vital and engaging ways to be involved!
