Our 2014-15 school year campaigns include:
State College Fair Trade Town
We are working towards getting State College certified as a Fair Trade Town!
THON Ethical Merchandise
THON is a great organization, but most of the apparel ordered is made in sweatshops by children in developing countries. The dyes used for our shirts actually cause cancer for these workers.
Ethical Club T-Shirts
Penn State clubs order a lot of apparel to show group pride! How great would it be if all of these shirts, sweats, and other clothes were sweatshop-free?
Penn State Fair Trade University
A long-term goal is to get Penn State certified as a fair trade university
On March 18th we are holding a chocolate and banana event to raise awareness about fair trade bananas, and tack onto the United Students for Fair Trade Just Bananas campaign.
