Mexican Fair Trade Coffee Farmer visits Temple!

Temple Students for Fair Trade (TSFT) is a subcommittee of Students for Responsible Business (SRB) that was started at the beginning of the Fall 2011 semester. TSFT is on a mission to turn Temple University into a Fair Trade University (Fair Trade USA Certified) by 2013, which involves forming a Fair Trade Committee, making Fair Trade products available in university-owned & operated outlets as well as included in service contracts wherever possible, using Fair Trade products at internal university meetings, events hosted by Temple, and in university offices, developing a Fair Trade Resolution and Fair Trade Procurement Policy, and a commitment to Fair Trade education, awareness-raising and growth of the Fair Trade campaign.

We believe that every purchase matters and are working to educate other students about Fair Trade product availability to shift the demand toward quality products that guarantee fair labor practices, higher wages, high environmental standards, and a better life for the farmers and artisans who produce Fair Trade products.
