Fair trade is more than just an economic concept, IT IS A MOVEMENT! The Ohio Fair Trade Network is committed to creating positive change in our world by empowering consumers with an understanding of the impact of their purchasing choices and by educating businesses about the impact of their trading practices. We believe that the resulting expanded economic opportunities created by fair trade will benefit all, particularly the world’s most disadvantaged.
You can be part of building the movement by “Connecting a Fellow Buckeye” with the Ohio Fair Trade Network! Here’s how:
1. Tell a friend or family member about fair trade.
2. Share www.ohiofairtrade.com with those interested in learning more about fair trade.
3. Encourage them to join the Ohio Fair Trade Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn groups.
The fair trade movement in Ohio will significantly expand as more consumers and businesses insist that the fair trade principles of accountability, transparency, cooperation, and respect for human dignity be integrated into production, trade, and consumption activities. Be part of getting Ohioans more connected with the fair trade movement!
