Why Fair Trade Fundraising?
Many traditional fundraisers often involve mass-produced products such as candy loaded with high-fructose corn syrup, toxic candles or bad-for-the rainforest wrapping paper. There is little information about where and how these products are made and priced. Many school/team/club fundraisers offer children more "stuff" to incentivize them as opposed to teaching them about our global community and the people in it.
Our products are fair trade certified - ethically made and sustainable - from small communities and Co-Ops around the world. They allow people to farm and create using their ethnic practices, keeping their cultural heritage alive.
FairTrade Caravans’ progressive fundraisers provide an enrichment component as well as a business model that considers health, environmental and fair trade issues. For more information or to sign up.
