The North West Fair Trade Coalition is an educational resource and advocacy organization that promotes and supports international Fair Trade, conscious consumption and doing business fairly in our community.
We are people driven to motivate citizens to integrate fairness and integrity into their everyday decision-making through the support of small producers, workers’ rights and economic justice in our trading system. By increasing consumer awareness of the Fair Trade model, we can increase consumer purchase of Fair Trade products, strengthen our local economy and create solutions to end global poverty.
