This handbook is designed to help future students advocate for fair trade, or sweatshop-free merchandise in the college bookstore. Background information on the fair trade movement, presentation slides with talking points, and an annotated bibliography on sweatshop labor and fair are provided.
The supplemental research paper provides a history of the fair trade movement, and the ethical implications of moving away from sweatshop labor.
