We launched the Ethical Trade Marketplace, local shopping with global impact, about four years ago. Our aim was to provide awareness about ethical trade as well as an opportunity to shop from a variety of fair, ethical and for-cause products. Over the last several years, the opportunity to purchase fair and ethically traded products has greatly increased, through web-based sales as well as brick and mortar locations. This year, we have decided to pivot our approach. Rather than a one time market, we will be highlighting products from our local and global partners throughout the year during smaller events, and on select Sunday mornings. In the future we may decide to go back to a one-day market, but for this year we are trying this new approach. To everyone who has been involved in the ETM over the past several years, we want you to know how much we value your partnership and contribution.
