World Fair Trade Day at Sustainable NYC

The New York City Fair Trade Coalition hosted a great event on Sunday, May 15 to celebrate World Fair Trade Day! Located at Sustainable NYC in downtown Manhattan, the event featured booths from fair trade companies where visitors could learn about the story of their products. And that's a really big part of Fair Trade - bringing the consumer back to the production and increasing appreciation for the resources and labor that went into it.  These booths were in addition to the incredible stock of fair trade and sustainable products Sustainable NYC carries daily. 

Below are a few photos I took at the event.

  1. I always wonder how many women would stop painting their nails if they knew how toxic the stuff is. Thanks for the tip on the eco-friendly version.
