We're getting closer to gaining the status of being a Fair Trade Town. There are 5 hurdles to jump and we have cleared two of them. To be a Fair Trade Town, Boulder needs...
- steering committee (achieved),
- media attention (achieved)
- at least 20 retailers selling Fair Trade products (we're documenting this)
- at least 20 community organizations such as schools, universities, faith groups that promote Fair Trade (we're starting to make contact with them)
- a resolution supporting Fair Trade passed by the city council (we're working on this)
In yesterday's steering committee meeting, we decided to focus on the retailers and we'll be reaching out to them over the next couple of weeks to document exactly where you can buy Fair Trade in Boulder. If you are a retailer offering Fair Trade products - please do contact us to get included in the online map and to participate in this initiative.
