Winter Park Becoming Part of Fair Trade Towns USA

Winter Park is working to become part of a program called Fair Trade Towns USA, a nation wide effort to designate whole towns as supporters of Fair Trade. 

Winter Park's Fair Trade Towns USA Facebook Page

Fair Trade Towns US is a fun and engaging way to grow the Fair Trade movement in your community. As a comprehensive platform for growing awareness, availability, and commitment to Fair Trade in the US, Fair Trade Towns provides the opportunity to build community in your town, as well as connect your community to those in the developing world.
Fair Trade Towns unites conscious consumers, dedicated activists, members of the business and retail community, local communities of faith and other community organizations, and your city or town government in the effort to ensure that we are all playing a part in supporting those who provide us with so much in the US market. Through dynamic events, meetings, online organizing and other outreach we bring together a diverse group of community members to expand the message of the importance of Fair Trade and unite our communities behind a banner of global justice and equity.
