Fair Trade Resources

We're proud to be one of the first Fair Trade Schools in the nation, and fortunate to be located in the heart of Media, America's First Fair Trade Town! Media-Providence Friends School became a certified Fair Trade school in 2014 and continues to be deeply committed to the mission of fair trade, especially as it connects to the Quaker Testimonies in educating students about using their purchasing power to make a better world.
