Loyola Catholic School, Mankato

The future of Fair Trade lies with the youth! So - imagine how excited MAFTTI was when, six months after the Fair Trade Town Declaration, Loyola Catholic School in Mankato became the FIRST K-12 Fair Trade school in the whole country, in May 2012!!!  Congratulations to the Loyola Fair Trade Committee. This was, in fact, an independent initiative but one that has seen a productive relationship develop between Fair Trade in the school setting and Fair Trade in the town. Click on the logo for more.
