Students of Alexander Valley Elementary School visit One World Fair Trade! February 19 2015, 0 Comments
Students of Alexander Valley Elementary School visit One World Fair Trade to learn about Fair Trade for their World Awareness Badge. Parents, teachers and students listen as Rowan Abbott explains just how Fair Trade makes such a difference in the lives of artisans and producers in Third World countries. Rowan shows examples of handcrafts made with recycled and sustainable materials as well as shows these students where, on a world map, these handmade products were made. Some students asked great questions such as “are any of these products made by a machine?” and “how long does it take for the products to get to your store?”
We really enjoyed this entire group and give praise to the parents and teachers that came up with the idea to educate their students about Fair Trade. All of these very well behaved children departed with a Fair Trade Chocolate Bar!
Thank you Rowan for your wonderful interaction and great presentation to these children!
