Sustain La Mesa Environmental Festival this Saturday!
Please stop by!
San Diego County Fair Trade • La Mesa Fair Trade • SDSU Fair Trade Student Life Organization

Join our movement as we feature Fair Trade crafts & women's accessories - including recycled jewelry, t-shirts and lots more.  Here is an opportunity to join the many thousands of today’s consumers who are inspired to add “socially responsible” to their shopping list. To purchase a Fair Trade certified product is to make a difference. The designation signifies that artisans and farmers in the poorest areas of the world have received fair, livable wages for their product or ingredients.

In addition, certain standards must be met in the production process.  These include protecting the environment, building economic sustainability, and providing opportunities for education and health care for families.  Young children are protected from forced labor.

Awareness of Fair Trade is growing in San Diego County and well as in La Mesa.  Stop by our booth and see why La Mesa is a Fair Trade Town and why SDSU is fast becoming a Fair Trade University following UCSD, USD and Pt. Loma Nazarene University.
