Fair Trade Festival at McMaster

This week saw the coming of OPIRG’s 15th Annual Fair Trade Festival.

The fair featured fair trade vendors selling all kinds of goods. The fair provides an opportunity for sellers to come together and show McMaster what they offer- giving student buyers more options that retails outlets that are readily available.

A discussion featuring Michael Sacco, of fair trade chocolate retailer ChocoSol, went beyond fair trade to also include sustainability rooted in relationships rather than markets.
