Fair Trade Fair next week!

Come and meet the suppliers who make our Fair Trade University possible!

As part of Fairtrade Fortnight (Aotearoa’s biggest fair trade campaign) the UC Sustainability Community is holding a Fair Trade Fair on Wednesday 14 August, so you can meet our campus fair trade suppliers (and most importantly, try their yummy fairly traded treats!).

What can you expect?

  • Common Good Coffee Roasters providing free fair trade filter coffee to sip on while you chat, and a chance to WIN a bag of their coffee beans to take home
  • Karma Cola will be there handing out tasters of their delicious, fair trade, feel good fizz
  • We’ll be cranking the smoothie bike thanks to fair trade banana company, All Good Organics (plus your chance to win a box of bananas!)

  • The Native Loom will be showing off their ethically made, organic produce bags and textiles
  • And Office Max will be there teaming up with Robert Harris to bring you some fair trade cold brew coffee samples, as well as surprising you with their huge range of fair trade goodies available to order through Unimarket.
