The BHS Fair Trade Club hosted an assembly to educate the school body on
the benefits of Fair Trade as a form of social activism in everyday life.
There was a panel of speakers to share about the impact of Fair Trade on
their work and personal lives: Matthieu Senard - CEO of Alter Eco, Maya
Spaull - head of Fair Trade Apparel, and we raised over $1,000 to bring
Omar Rodriguez - Fair Trade coffee co-op leader from Honduras - to speak.
As the theme of our presentation was Fair Trade: Now More than Ever, we
wished to emphasize the importance of Fair Trade today as a call to action
for the BHS community.
