Fair Trade Fayres in Springfield

April 19, 2009 at 19:52 1 comment

We held two Fair Trade Fayres this weekend.

Pathways UMC held their fourth annual Greater Gift Sale on April 19th and 20th and Unitarian Universalist held their first Fair Trade Fayre as part of Earth Day.

We hear plenty of news about how tough times are, and how little people are spending.

Both events were well supported, with people digging deep to support the artisans of developing countries that are struggling to improve their way of life in a sustainable way.

When we started Global Fayre, we knew that awareness of Fair Trade in Springfield was low, but we were confident that people would be receptive. Nearly two years on, we’re just awed by the depth of compassion that the people here show, and we’re thrilled by the progress that Fair Trade is making in our part of the midwest.
