Fair Trade Shopping in Claremont

Eco-friendly travelers will appreciate that Claremont, California, is the first Fair Trade Town in Southern California. The designation means Claremont encourages its merchants to support small producers locally and worldwide that adhere to environmental standards to protect the planet, safe working conditions, fair prices and no forced child labor.

Fair Trade Claremont is a coalition of citizens, businesses, civic groups, schools and faith communities working to increase understanding, availability, and use of Fair Trade products as a means to reduce poverty, improve lives, and protect the planet.
