Alliance Fair Trade Gifts at Mayfest
Want to help people earn their way out of poverty? Come by the the Alliance Fair Trade Gifts and Tools For Change Workshop at Bennington’s Mayfest on Saturday, May 25. Fair trade is a social business model that provides a fair wage for workers/artisans in their region of the world. Every purchase unfolds a personal story of creativity and perseverance for thor those who seek to improve life for themselves and their families. For man – especially women – fair trade offers an escape from human trafficking, a $150 billion enterprise, eclipsing the combined 2016 sales ($136.6 billion) for Nike, Google, Starbucks and the NFL. Think on that!
Alliance Fair Trade Gifts features many affordable hand-crafted collections of quilled greeting cards, olive oils, nourishing food mixes, wallets and bags, coffee, chocolate, jewelry, scarves and more. All profits provide more fair trade items and support local organizations. All staff are volunteers from the Missionary Alliance Church in Bennington.
