Fair Trade Month Celebration in Towers Coming Soon!
Look for this label if you would like to purchase Fair Trade products.
The Fair Trade Month Celebration in Towers on October 21st is one of the ways we educate the Ithaca College Community on Ithaca Dining Services commitment to supporting ethical businesses. A Fair Trade certification ensures that workers that harvest coffee, for example, have been paid a fair wage for their labor. All of the coffee available on campus is Fair Trade Certified, even the new Seattle's Best Coffee served at tc lounge. Even better, the Green Mountain coffee offered in all resident dining locations is organic! Come to the celebration during lunch and let us reward you for your ethical purchasing efforts by entering into a raffle. The prize package you have a chance to win will include a reusable water bottle, mug, and bag, a self-powered flashlight, and a grow-your-own basil plant kit, bamboo kitchen utensils, and 100% recycled notebook and pen! If you cannot make it to this event, join us on October 26th to taste Seattle's Best Fairtrade Coffee at tc lounge and another chance to win prizes!
