On Tuesday, October 4, our Catholic Relief Services Student Ambassadors were on the quad educating the campus community about fair trade and its connection to the sustainable purchasing practices promoted by No Impact Week. The Student Ambassadors had fair trade chocolate to sample and to sell, and they sold nearly all of the supplies available. Thanks to everyone who stopped by, and please remember fair trade chocolate as you prepare for Halloween! For a closer look at CRS and Fair Trade, see crsfairtrade.org.
