Events to mark fair trade week

From The Norman Transcript:

Starting Saturday, a slew of activities centered around products made with fair labor practices will encourage Norman residents to buy fair trade certified products.

Local group Norman Fair Trade will host seven events in nine days to celebrate the first-ever Fair Trade Awareness Week in Norman.

“We encourage people to come and join us in supporting and promoting a system that puts an emphasis on human dignity and environmental sustainability,” said Ajit Bhand, member of Norman Fair Trade.

The group sponsors events to raise awareness about fair trade and encourages local businesses to sell fair trade products. They are also working to make Norman an official Fair Trade City.
