The first retailers and businesses have been added to the map on the Fair Trade Towns USA website. http://www.fairtradetownsusa.org/towns/co/boulder/
Fair Trade - Retail Database
This is the first step so that Boulder residents can find where to buy Fair Trade products. This list includes stores, cafes, restaurants and other retail outlets. The map is a Google map embedded in the Boulder page on the Fair Trade Towns USA website (www.fairtradetownsusa.org/towns/co/boulder). Businesses can complete a short questionnaire online at http://tinyurl.com/bftt-retail-form. If you represent a Fair Trade retailer in Boulder, please do complete the questionnaire.
The database is really just the first step – next we want to involve retailers in the campaign. This could be through membership of the steering committee or in a less formal role. It could also be through participating in events to raise awareness of Fair Trade, such as on World Fair Trade Day (May 14, 2011).
