A Very ATX Christmas…

Here in Austin, there are a few certain types of people that we all come across – the Longhorn student, the musician/bartender, the downtown tech start-up set, and those hippies who are keepin’ it weird. We’ve decided to take the hard work out for you, and show how you can celebrate a Fairtrade Christmas with all your Austin friends and family!

1. The College Kid

Whether you’re buying for your roommate on a budget or spoiling a son or daughter, we’ve got great gifts for Freshmen to Seniors. Help them make that dorm room their own with fairtrade finishing touches, or give them a floppy frisbee to toss down the corridor or on the lawns! And don’t forget our range of Equal Exchange fairtrade coffee, chocolate and healthy snacks for those inevitable all-nighters.
