Monday, November 26, 2012 at 7:00 PM at the Atlantic County Library/Galloway.
Go Green Galloway resumes their ongoing Environmental Movie Series with a screening of the film BUYER BE FAIR, a film about the promotion of goods that are produced in a fair, healthy and safe manner.
BUYER BE FAIR looks at two major trade goods -- timber and coffee -- to find out how certification works and whether it helps the world's poor, and their lands. Can the
lessons from certification of timber, by the Forest Stewardship Council, and coffee, by Fair Trade, be applied to other products?
BUYER BE FAIR takes viewers to Mexico, the Netherlands, the UK, Sweden, the USA and Canada, where compelling stories and characters raise and answer these questions in a powerful documentary that explores new ways to make globalization work for all of us.
We invite the public to join us for this FREE event. There will be light refreshments, including Fair Trade coffee. There will also be a FAIR TRADE CHOCOLATE TASTING;
allowing attendees to rank different varieties of chocolates. The chocolates will be available for purchase.
Go Green Galloway would like to thank the Atlantic County Library System for their continued support of our programs.
