Brady and Alicia are about two years into their online business selling fair trade goods at TwoHandsWorldshop.com. It's growing quite nicely because they are doing some very cool things to market themselves.
Last Saturday, more than a hundred folks braved some cool, rainy weather to attend the Lawrence version of a worldwide coffee break. The event at Watson Park in Lawrence was sponsored by TwoHands and served up some great fair trade coffee to the attendees.
On May 19th, TwoHands will cosponsor a special showing of the film "Black Gold." The film has received rave reviews in telling the story of how one man fights for a fair price for his coffee. It should make us think more carefully about our morning cup of joe and where the beans for it started.
Finally, TwoHands will be present for the big Wakarusa Festival from June 5-8 at Clinton Lake outside Lawrence. Brady and Alicia will have fair trade products on sale throughout the festival which is fast becoming one of the big music festivals in the nation.
