The Fair Trade Federation is the premiere North American membership organization for organizations and companies committed to fair trade, and now they’re coming to town! Each year the Fair Trade Federation holds a conference for members, which this year will be held right here in good ol’ Portland. I can’t think of a better place since sustainability is a central part of the Portland lifestyle.
The conference will be March 27-29, 2009 at the Doubletree Hotel. It’s open to members and non-members and registration is available on the Fair Trade Federation’s site. Bambootique has been a member since its inception three years ago and I’m looking forward to meeting like-minded companies and learning more about current trends within the fair trade movement. Hope to see you there!
