What We Do

FAIR TRADE @ Emanuel Church

The Better World Project!

The First Sunday of the month we sell Fair Trade Consumables including:  Chocolate, Bean soup, Coffee, Tea, cookie and brownie mixes, and etc.  We sell these items at barely over cost and the income pays for our coffee hour which serves Fair Trade Coffee.

Fair Trade is an alternative way to do business that empowers global communities based on equity, justice, transparency, authentic partnership and sustainability.  http://www.fairtradeusa.org/what-is-fair-trade for more information.

On most Winter months we also sell items made by the Alto Cayma project in Peru.  More Information here…  http://www.serving-alto-cayma.info/
