ALTERNATIVES HAPPENING NOW: MAKING EL PASO AND LAS CRUCES FAIR TRADE TOWNS

This is a long-term effort to turn Las Cruces and El Paso into Fair Trade Towns. 

Learn more about El Paso's efforts here and Las Cruces' efforts here.  Right now what is needed in both campaigns is to snap pictures of fair trade certified products when you see them in stores, and send them to Julie (Las Cruces) or Kristina (El Paso) with the name of the store. Las Cruces needs to identify 13 businesses that sell at least two fair trade certified products. To ensure they are fair trade certified they need to have one of these labels attached. El Paso needs to identify 27 businesses. Check our facebook pages for more information.
