Mary Linnell-Simmons is the Marketing and Communications Manager at Fairtrade America, a non-profit working with businesses and consumers to make trade fairer for farmers and workers in developing countries. She came to Fairtrade after living and working in the UK for 8 years, a place where Fairtrade certified products are on every shelf in every grocery store. Professionally, Mary hopes to make Fairtrade the norm in the United States. Personally, she tries to green her own life any way she can – whether that be biking to work, spending family vacations camping, or trying to make and create rather than consume and buy wherever possible.
