About Fair Trade Waterloo

Fair Trade Waterloo (FTW) is a community project to promote knowledge and action around trade justice issues. The goal is to get the City of Waterloo recognized by FairTrade Canada as a "Fair Trade Town". A Fair Trade Town is one that has abundant availability of fair trade products, town council support, a steering committee, events and media coverage around fair trade, fair trade use by community organizations, and active support of other ethical consumption initiatives (local, organic, handmade, freecycling, etc). FTW is about making informed empowered global citizens, changing our mindsets when we go to the store, and supporting sustainable, community-led development overseas.
