Fair Trade Clothing Co-op Provides Shirts for Dali Lama Visit

I received some good news concerning a TorontoTheBetter member today, via the Ontario Co-operative Association:


FAIR TRADE T-SHIRTS SUPPORT THE WORK OF TIBETAN ASSOCIATION

The Fair Trade Clothing Co-op recently sold 5,000 fairly traded shirts to the Canadian Tibetan Association of Ontario (CTAO).

These were distributed at the Rogers Centre for the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet's visit to Toronto. The CTAO was delighted to find a fair trade option within Toronto.

The shirts are made in El Salvador by a co-op of single mothers. The clothes are distributed within Canada by JustShirts Clothing Co-operative and bought by organizations like the Fair Trade Clothing Co-op, who are fighting for social justice and creating an alternative for socially conscious consumers.
