Around two weeks ago, on May 3rd, a twitter chat was organized to discuss Fairtrade. It was organized together by @Patagonia, @WestElm, @DAVIDsTEA, @prAna, @Heifer, @EndTraffick, @Dillanos, @Love146 and @FairTradeUSA. Since it was more than 10 days back, Storify wouldn’t let me see beyond that limit. I had to sift through a number of haphazard tweets from liked tweets. It slowed me and I’m dizzy now. Nevertheless, I did it and here it is, if not a complete version of the twitter chat. At the end of which I ask if anyone knows where I can get formal fairtrade wear in New Jersey. Any idea?
