What is responsible consumption?
Responsible consumption consists of choosing products and services, not only based on their quality and price, but also on their environmental and social impact. Choose those options that respect nature and social equality, with fair working conditions in all stages of the production cycle. Under a paradigm of sustainable development, where economic, social, environmental, and also cultural and political factors are in harmony , producers adapt their processes appealing to creativity and innovation. Values such as the 3Rs (reduce, reuse and recycle), fair working conditions, solidarity and fair trade, are increasingly incorporated when developing new projects.
At the fair there is a space dedicated to NGOs, social projects and educational institutions where they present their projects to the community. This space is constituted as “rotating” and the assistants have the character of “guests”. Planned activities include workshops, talks, live music, and contests, among other topics. Send us an email!
