Fair Trade Yelping in Washington, D.C.

Yelpdc_pangea_726_037 DC yelpers came out en masse on Thursday, July 26th to sample panini sandwiches, wraps and other delights while browsing the beautiful, fair trade crafts, jewelry, home décor and accessories at Pangea Café & Artisan Market.  Those who made purchases were glad to know that their cash helps create sustainable livelihoods for artisans in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

Yelpdc_pangea_726_033The event hosted new yelpers including Craig R, Adam M, Keely R and Eric C  as well as old school yelpers like Alexis G, Kathleen M and Angela N. Traveling the furthest distance for the event was elite yelper Allison B who came all the way from California to attend with Takaki K. Lively debates regarding the upcoming chocolate chip cookie bake-off continued from the Talk boards thanks to participation from passionate yelpers like Richard C and Lauren B.

We’ve got even more fun lined up in August for the Yelp Elite Squad, make sure to check the calendar for all the details!

Until next we meet again -- SYOY,
