On Saturday, October 8, 2022, the Ohio Fair Trade Network together with John Carroll University is hosting the 2022 Ohio Fair Trade Teach-In and Expo!

Join us for one of the largest regional fair trade events in the country. Bringing people together from across Ohio and neighboring states, the Ohio Fair Trade Teach-In & Expo is the place to learn about models for socially conscious and environmentally sustainable global trade.

The theme for the 2022 Fair Trade Teach-In & Expo is Environmental Sustainability/Care for  Our Earth, one of the nine principles of fair trade!

Guest speakers will highlight these and other principles of fair trade, inviting all of us to play our part in promoting social and economic justice.

The Fair Trade Marketplace will feature hundreds of unique products from dozens of vendors, generating vital income for artisan and farming families. Find a great selection of fair trade coffee, tea, chocolate and more, as well as beautiful handcrafted jewelry, clothing, and home décor items.

Free admission and fair trade goodie bags! Complimentary fair trade coffee, tea, and chocolate will be offered by Equal Exchange, a worker-owned cooperative.
