Fair Trade Sale at St. Basil Church
November 13, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm
SHOP AT THE FAIR TRADE FAIR AND CHRISTMAS BOUTIQUE St Basil the Great Parish – Brecksville, OH Sunday, November 13, 2022 from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Begin your Christmas shopping early knowing that your purchase can make a real difference for people around the world. You will be supporting farmers and artisans, who are working to supply food, shelter and education for their family!
Shopping Fair Trade helps to reduce poverty in developing nations while offering eco-friendly products from around the world and right here in Cleveland.
Tips to get started:
1) Start with a percentage of your gift-giving budget: Fair trade Christmas buying might not happen in one season. Start somewhere, find some nice items, and work your way up.
2) Pick a few family members or friends likeliest to love your fair trade gifts: Then build on that positive experience one year at a time.
3) Help the fair trade groups who made the items tell their story: Include a small handout, or print good stories from a group’s website that powerfully conveys their fair trade story, their impact on those they employ/empower, and their sustainability practices.
