Fair Trade Beads & Beans | Sat March 10, 2018
Connect with the sights, sounds, tastes, and culture of Nicaragua
Escape the winter blues by connecting with the sights, sounds, tastes, and culture of Nicaragua! Learn about fair trade’s impact to alleviate poverty and promote healthier communities while making a rainforest seed bracelet from Flatboat Fair Traders and sipping fair trade, organic, and bird-friendly certified coffee from Building New Hope (Or enjoy some fair trade hot chocolate or tea.)
Take a deeper look at the fair-trade supply chain that brought these goods to Pittsburgh and get to know the artisans and coffee farmers whose lives are directly impacted by your purchase and support. Learn a bit about certifications and labels. We’ll also have some music and pictures to bring the sunshine and colors of the region to you! This event is family-friendly but best for elementary aged children or older. (Some of the beads are quite small so not appropriate for small children.)
Proceeds from this event will benefit the educational projects of Building New Hope.
