After such a great response for the artisan's crafts during our first sale, we headed back to Manhattan for a Holiday Fair Trade Sale in December. We collaborated with the KSU Fair Trade Advocates, Urban Haat and friends to offer a variety of crafts from the artisans we are supporting in India, from handbags and stationary to cushion covers and placemat sets.
We also served Fair Trade coffee and chocolate and helped promote the local natural food store and other fair trade organizations. There was great support from the community and students who were keen to support ethical consumerism and buy fair trade products. The best part was in fact seeing all the supporters and hearing their enthusiasm for this new movement of social responsibility!!
We're excited about the support for AWAZ's work and are hosting another fair trade sale in Manhattan before we make our big move to Portland, Oregon. Join us!!
