Fair Trade in Brasilândia


Since the first Transition Brasilândia in 2009, formed several working groups, and one of them was the group of Fair Trading. The Fair Trade is an alternative model of consumption more sustainable, it is not necessary to raise more resources to get something different, fun and most of it is socializing with friends and stories to convince the exchange of products.

Initiatives by the project lead, Aline and Priscilla, residents of Brasilândia, decided to revive the group. To start and learn how to make a good campaign exchanges, Isabela Menezes, the Office of Sustainability, supported the initiative and took the calls and conversations on the day of the Fair.

The fair was held in the house of the grandmother Aline and Priscilla, with participation by weight of family and friends.
