Fair Trade Altadena

Fair Trade Altadena (FTA) is a coalition of citizens, community groups and ethical businesses working to increase the availability and use of fair trade products throughout Altadena, CA.

To earn a designation as a Fair Trade Town, the committee has already identified eight retailers that sell Fair Trade products and eight organizations that serve fair trade items at their meetings or offices. In addition, the committee will ask the Town Council to pass a resolution declaring Altadena’s dedication to fair trade practices.

Fair Trade Altadena is part of a global movement to normalize fair trade as an institutional practice and consumer preference across 24 countries and on six continents. More than 1,400 communities and thousands of schools and congregations on six continents have joined together to alleviate poverty through fair trade. In fact, our sister city, Pasadena became a Fair Trade Town in 2013.
