We believe that in order to create a sustainable and equitable economic system for ourselves and future generations, we must create businesses and trading partnerships that are committed to fairness and sustainability in all aspects of their operations. This is what we aspire to.
The Green Campus Cooperative was founded by students and faculty members of York University who were concerned about the limited supply of sustainable products on campus, and by the lack of practical ways for students to get involved in changing that situation. They were particularly concerned about the lack of Fair Trade cotton products, and that there were no Fair Trade cotton t-shirt importers in the country. So, in September 2011 we incorporated our own business to supply sustainable products!
