What is Fair Trade?

It’s easier than you think to create change. While the U.S represents 5% of the world’s population we consume 29% of the world’s resources. We are the largest consumer nation in the world. Imagine our impact when we shopped more consciously? When you choose to purchase Fair Trade products, you are endorsing an economic system that provides opportunities for international farmers, artisans and workers to life themselves out of poverty. Fair Trade seeks to enable economic development through equitable trading partnerships. Fair Trade ensures consumers that the products they purchase were grown, harvested, crafted and traded in ways that improve lives and protect the environment.

Butler University is aiming to become the first Fair Trade Designated school in the state of Indiana. The products below are all Fair Trade Certified, and are available on-campus.
