From the hustle and bustle of neon Tokyo to the tranquil and peaceful mountainside of Hakone, I had a fantastic time exploring the culture and devouring the delicious food (read: ramen). However, I was also there for educational purposes, so inevitably, I had to visit the site of possibly one of

For Your Back-To-School List: Fairtrade Purchases And Ethics Education

Amidst end-of-summer insanity, it can be easy to lose ourselves in preparations for the year ahead. Between work and school, there never seems to be enough time to get everything done and accomplish what we had hoped.
