Celebrate Fair Trade Month

October is Fair Trade Month. Did you know that State College has been a fair trade town since 2015? That’s when the State College Borough Council passed a resolution in support of fair trade as an issue important to its government and residents. What does that mean? Fair trade businesses establish long-term collaborative relationships with impoverished farmers and artisans in developing countries. They assist them in developing their skills; securing safe, healthy working conditions and fair wages; and selling their products around the world. When you purchase fairly traded products, you help create brighter futures for producers and their families. Celebrate Fair Trade Month in State College by joining Barranquero Cafe and Ten Thousand Villages of Central PA from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Oct. 22 at the Barranquero Café, where you can find fair-trade crafts, coffee and food, while listening to live South American music by Los Tikis.
