Irvine is a town of 220,000 people in Orange County. There is a large college here, University of California at Irvine, with around 25,000 students. There are many technology, auto, software and professional services companies here. We are 50 miles South-East of downtown Los Angeles.
We have a small but growing committee that is beginning to organize the Fair Trade Town project. We have almost completed our survey of Fair Trade retailers. We have a Fair Trade retailer in the UCI Farmer’s Market every Saturday, and we have a new Green Market the 2nd Saturday morning of each month at Irvine Valley Community College.
Please keep in touch if you want to volunteer or help. Thanks.
