December: Fair Trade Month!
With the spirit of gift giving and community being in the air as the Holiday season approaches, we encourage all SU students, staff, faculty, and alumni to consider not only the impact the gifts you give have on the recipient, but on those who created them as well! CEJS will be hosting a Fair Trade Fair on December 1st in Campion Ballroom where you can explore and shop for fair trade items for everyone on your list! Learn More!
- Did you know Seattle University was the first University in the PNW to earn the designation of a “Fair Trade University?”
- Seattle University demonstrates their commitment to Fair Trade through the direct sale of Fair Trade products on campus, partnerships with coffee farmers in Nicaragua, and a dedication to selling Fair Trade certified food options in all campus restaurants and cafes.
- Quan Le, a CEJS Fellow and Albers Professor, is using educational events to teach marketing methods while promoting the sale of the Fair-Trade coffee Café Ambiental produced from the SU-Nicaraguan coffee farmer partnership. He is also working with the coffee farmers to help them reach the specialty coffee market in Seattle area.
