This organization goes above and beyond a lot of other organizations in promoting sustainable global communities. It is a great way for people in Salt Lake to learn about fair trade and how important it is to be aware of our impact in this world!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The Children's Cultural Program. Kids learn SO much about how connected they are to the rest of the world, and that education is invaluable.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Let them be more than JUST a fair trade store. There is so much more to fair trade education than selling artisan crafts - though that also makes the organization great!
