Fair trade is simply trade in which fair prices are paid to producers in developing countries.  LCR began promoting fair trade products after being introduced to the concept through the ELCA about 15 years ago. 


LCR opportunities for Fair Trade involvement:  LCR sells fair trade coffee, tea, and chocolates on the 2nd weekend of every month.  This is not a fundraiser but rather an opportunity to introduce the congregation to the concept of fair trade & promote fair trade purchases.
