The fair trade community has been sad to learn that the Fair Trade Resource Network will be closing its doors on May 31. Jeff Goldman and his team have worked hard to spread the word about fair trade, and we thank them for their incredible efforts. FTRN will be missed.
To make sure that educational materials and information about fair trade continue to be widely available, FTF will be taking ownership of the FTRN website. The website will remain in its current form until the fall, at which point we will begin transferring content to our site. We believe that fair trade education is important, and we are glad to help preserve this good work.
