Holiday Peace Market
- Time: 10:30 AM - 6:00 PM
- Location: Student Center Lobby Table A
- Organization: RC Center for Service Learning
Begin your holiday shopping season making conscious purchases toward economic, social and environmental empowerment at Regis Universityâ€™s Peace Marketâ€”an opportunity to support products from world communities and local non-profits! The Holiday Peace Market is a market of goods that are all fair trade.
What is fair trade?? Fair Trade goods are just that. Fair. Products come only from workers who are justly compensated. Fair trade is an organized social movement that aims to help producers in developing countries to make better trading conditions and promote sustainability. The movement advocates the payment of a higher price to exporters, as well as higher social and environmental standards. You can join in this effort by doing your holiday shopping at Regis Universityâ€™s very own Peace Market.
The Peace Market will be taking place December 5th and 6th in the Faculty Lounge, and lower and upper floors of the Student Center from 10:30am to 6:00pm. Come join Regis and the local community as we promote fair trade this holiday season!!
