What is FairTrade?
With Fairtrade you have the power to c
hange the world every day.
With one simple choice you can get farmers a better deal. And that means they can make their own decisions, control their futures and lead the dignified life everyone deserves.
What FairTrade does:
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers.
It’s about supporting the development of thriving farmer and worker communities that have more control over their futures and protecting the environment in which they live and work.
And it’s your opportunity to connect with the people who grow the produce and make the products that we all depend on.
Why does this matter on campus?
UTM as a campus has transitioned into a fully FairTrade certified campus. As part of the project the Student Union’s convenience store has also undertaken the responsibility of ordering ethically sourced products that are FairTrade certified. For more information check out uoft.me/fairtrade
