Donna Dagg is leading fair trade forward in her community

Donna is the sustainability manager for Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries. Her job is to make sure the large Crown Corporation acts sustainably in order to reduce the impact they, like so many other large organizations, can have on the environment.

A few years ago, Donna was introduced to the concept of fair trade. She began to think beyond the impact her workplace has on environmental sustainability and started to think about how it could impact social sustainability as well. Donna helped her workplace embrace the concept of fair trade and she has become a leading local voice for protecting the rights of farmers and workers living beyond our borders.

Now, Donna’s workplace serves only Fairtrade Certified coffee at their casinos and has stocked their liquor stores with 29 Fairtrade wines and spirits, the most of any province.
