Fair Trade: Spice it up for May!
Mother’s Day is coming, so what better time to add some spice to Mom’s day? WELCA (Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) is offering Fair Trade pepper corns, grown by two small farmer friends in Vietnam. A 2.2oz bottle costs only $6. A smaller chocolate bar, direct from Fair Trade cocoa growers turned chocolate-makers, will also be available. The bars cost $2.50 each and are sourced in Ghana, Grenada, Nigeria or Trinidad and Tobago. These bars are an attempt to decolonize the chocolate market by allowing the cocoa farmers/growers to produce their own chocolate. Quantities are limited. Check them out on Sunday, May 7th with all the usual Fair Trade products.
We’re back in business! You can stock up on your favorite Fair Trade products on the first Sunday of the month, just look for our table in Pioneer Chapel! It’s a good thing to support fair trade. All products support small farmers with a fairly traded profit, and some products support women farmers and health organizations that support women and children who are victims of racial violence.
–Ann Tohlen, The Fair Trade Coffee & Chocolate Lady
Each month St. James Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (WELCA) sell fair trade goods in the Pioneer Chapel after worship. Your purchase of fairly traded coffee, tea, and chocolate help support farmers all over the world!
