Women & Fair Trade Event a Success!
Thank you to the American Friends Service Committee of Austin for coordinating such a successful Fair Trade Craft Sale and Education Forum. Ten Thousand Villages was glad to be a part of it for the second year in a row and look forward to the fourth annual event next year.
This sale is about much more than purchasing quality products. It is about:
- Supporting women’s cooperatives that serve as a living alternative to dominant forms of production and distribution that exploit rather than support the creators of the goods we purchase.
- Influencing consumer’s purchasing habits which will favor small producers instead ofadding to corporate profits.
- Shortening the gap between producer and consumer.
