Fair Trade Products Do Make a Difference
Over 60% of UU congregations participate in the Equal Exchange Fair Trade project, according to Sherry and Tony Zoars, making UU the largest of the ten participating denominations. Last year, proceeds from Fair Trade sales at UU congregations like ours nationwide netted $15,441.58 for the UU Service Committee's Small Farmer Fund, according to the Zoars. The fund supported Women Making Change in Kenya and United We Heal the Earth on the border of Uganda and Kenya. These projects help to conserve the environment and support sustainable agriculture, assist young girls, and provide youth education on nutrition. In addition, our fellowship received a small dividend from the sales, amounting to $278.55 in 2012. Fair Trade products, including a new product, cocoa, will be on sale after services throughout November. They make wonderful stocking stuffers and hostess gifts for the holidays.
