Help us identify Fair Trade community organizations in Philadelphia!

Fair Trade PHL has already achieved 3 out of 5 criteria for Philadelphia city to become a fair Trade town.
Currently we are working on identifying community organizations, offices, schools and places for worship, where at least one Fair trade product is being used.
We need 61! We have 37.  24 More to Go!

 

Does your office or place of worship use Fair trade coffee/tea? If so, let us know. If you are not sure, can you find it out? If you know they don’t, can you work together with us to switch your office to Fair Trade products?
