Welcome to Fair Trade Teaneck, the 21st Fair Trade town in America
Fair Trade is a response to an escalating human rights crisis in developing regions of the world. It is an alternative to free trade that guarantees just labor practices, including the abolition of child slave labor; fair wages; and sustainable farming methods. You and other Teaneck consumers, by choosing certified Fair Trade products, can materially hep the impoverished and the vulnerable to become self-sufficient and achieve economic justice.
Meet Miguel Mateo Sebastian, a leader of one of Guatemala's successful Fair Trade coffee cooperatives, when he visits Teaneck on April 21st as part of his U.S. tour. For more details about his visit, check out our upcoming events.
